IWC 92
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, July 2012
($30) (a 50/50 blend of mourvedre and cinsault): Light orange. Pungent spice-accented aromas of dried red fruits orange peel and lavender. Fresh and racy on entry then fuller in the middle offering powerful red fruit... ($30) (a 50/50 blend of mourvedre and cinsault): Light orange. Pungent spice-accented aromas of dried red fruits orange peel and lavender. Fresh and racy on entry then fuller in the middle offering powerful red fruit and citrus flavors and a touch of candied anise. Finishes rich but dry with firm grip excellent length and lingering floral and spice notes. --- Josh Raynolds

Classic copper-tinged salmon color. Give this a few minutes to express aromatics of dried leather pepper and grilled peach. Oily and rich on entry this reveals sumptuous peach and nectarine tart flavors on the mid-palate... Classic copper-tinged salmon color. Give this a few minutes to express aromatics of dried leather pepper and grilled peach. Oily and rich on entry this reveals sumptuous peach and nectarine tart flavors on the mid-palate followed by savory earth and mineral notes on the back end. The lingering finish is atypical for a rose. French rose gets serious! Satisfying now this will develop further with another 6 to 12 months in bottle.
