89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2011
(58% shiraz, 15% cabernet sauvignon, 14% cinsault, 8% mourvedre, 4% grenache and 1% carignan, co-fermented in concrete tank): Bright ruby-red. High-toned raspberry liqueur, dark chocolate and wild herbs on the nose; in a distinctly Southern style. Then sweet and seamless but with surprising firming acidity and grip. Not complex but juicy and powerful, with building, drying tannins. A bit Rayas-like but without the mystery.
