Based on 85% Grenache and 5% each of Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault, it offers a gorgeous perfume of black raspberries, herbes de Provence, ground pepper, candied orange, and a touch of spiced meat. Pure class on the palate, with medium to full-bodied richness and ultra-fine tannins, it has terrific balance, a layered, elegant mouthfeel, and a great finish. This is one thrilling base cuvee to enjoy over the coming decade or more.

Ample fruit on the finish with a savory streak providing a nice counterpoint. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2021 through 2032. — J.M.

It's full-bodied and nearly creamy in texture, with silky tannins that make a subtle appearance on the licorice-tinged finish. Looking even more concentrated and structured than last year, it should drink well for at least a decade.- JC

Vivid ruby-red. Musky, spice-tinged red fruit, floral and herb qualities on the expressive nose. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that turn sweeter as the wine opens up...   Vivid ruby-red. Musky, spice-tinged red fruit, floral and herb qualities on the expressive nose. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that turn sweeter as the wine opens up. The floral note recurs on a long, smooth finish shaped by well-judged tannins. -- Josh Raynolds
