The entry-level Rhône blend is the 2016 Parabellum Coulee, composed of 75% Syrah and 25% Mourvèdre brought up in 50% new French oak. It's a beautifully pure, elegant wine that has terrific notes of blueberries, smoked herbs, hints of bacon fat, and spring flowers. It's ripe and has a slightly more forward, seamless texture than the top cuvée, with remarkable purity and a great finish.

(90-92 points) Rich and layered, this barrel sample of the 2016 Parabellum Coulée offers up aromas of creamy red-black fruit, subtle grilled meat and a discrete framing of spicy oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with powdery tannins and a supple, expansive, low-acid profile. Once it's in bottle, it should drink well on release. - WK
