88(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(70% grenache from 70-year-old vines, and 30% syrah from 50-year-old vines):  Bright violet.  Initially reduced but aeration brings up sour cherry and cassis aromas and flavors, along with notes of licorice and black tea.  Youthfully taut Rasteau with good focus and grip on the long, spicy finish.  By all means decant this wine if you plan on drinking it in the next couple of years.
