90 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

(roughly two-thirds grenache, with syrah and a bit of mourvedre):  Dark purple.  Deeply pitched aromas of blackberry and blueberry, with smoke and peppery spice accents.  Sappy and expansive, offering gently sweet, seamless, nicely focused dark fruit flavors.  Shows a smoky nuance on the finish, which is refreshingly bitter and long.  This wine should be even better in a couple years but it drinks well now with a bit of air.
