It offers a Châteauneuf du Pape-like perfume of red and black fruits, herbes de Provence, dried violets, pepper, and incense. Full-bodied, powerful, super-rich, and textured, it has beautiful Grenache sweetness of fruit, ripe, polished tannins, and a monster personality, all while staying flawlessly balanced and light on its feet. It's a brilliant wine, the finest to date for the cuvée, and can be enjoyed any time over the coming 10-15 years. collapse

Black pepper, smoke, licorice, game and dark spice add striking savory top notes. The 2017 has terrific density, but it is also tightly wound and in need of time to be at its very best. Even so, all the elements are impeccably balanced. BMT is 50% Rodney's Syrah, 25% Colson Canyon Syrah and 25% Colson Canyon Grenache. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

It offers aromas of blueberry, red cherry jam, baked blackberries and grilled beef with nuances of cocoa, roasted coffee bean, fried herbs and flowers. It's full-bodied and savory with firm, chewy tannins and juicy acidity, finishing long and nuanced. Give this a few more years in bottle. collapse

Wine Spectator, April 2019
Brooding and muscular yet loaded with fruit, offering floral huckleberry, bacon and licorice flavors that intensify toward broad-shouldered tannins. Best from 2022 through 2028. 250 cases made. — TF
