Showing plenty of black raspberry, toasted spice, creamy licorice and hints of violets, it’s a classic example of this cuvée that will benefit from a year or two in the cellar, and have no problem evolving gracefully through 2027.- JD

Young, and filled with promise, due to its multiple layers of sweet, silky, ripe, juicy, red fruits, licorice and spice. Round in texture, if you can't keep your hands off your stash, I understand as it's tasting great...   Young, and filled with promise, due to its multiple layers of sweet, silky, ripe, juicy, red fruits, licorice and spice. Round in texture, if you can't keep your hands off your stash, I understand as it's tasting great already. But just a few years will add even more softness and complexity to the wine. The wine was made from blending 45% Grenache, 35% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre.

Les Origines contains 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre, both matured in oak casks, so there's always some baking spices and a somewhat open texture.

Cinnamon and clove join plum and licorice in this full-bodied, velvety wine. It's powerful and rich, with a long finish. Drink now–2025. JOE CZERWINSKI

Expressive red and dark berry aromas are complicated by nuances of spicecake, anise and candied flowers. Juicy, focused and pure on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors that firm up slowly with air. Shows excellent clarity and power on the finish, which lingers with echoing floral and berry skin notes. -- Josh Raynolds
