95 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2008

($70; 100% grenache) Deep red. Wonderfully sexy strawberry, raspberry, blood orange and floral aromas are downright Burgundian-and great Burgundy at that. Silky and sweet, with deep red berry flavors and an array of floral pastille and mineral qualities carrying through the finish. There are tannins here but they don't appear until very, very late, allowing the seductive fruit to shine. This was as alluring a wine as I tasted on this year's trip.

Outstanding CdP
10/30/2007
by rpm_56
We had this at very special 50th birthday dinner and the crew loved it. Two of us had the roasted lamb and this was the prefect marriage of for this exquisite wine. A dark cherry and allspice nose, followed by a smooth as silk mid-palate and a spicy, sustained finish. One of the best CdP I've ever had the pleasure of savoring.
