91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2011
(80% shiraz, 10% mourvedre, 7% cinsault and 3% grenache): Bright, deep red-ruby. Enticing aromas of blackberry, raspberry, pepper, black olive and game. Supple, lush and broad but with a light touch and a restrained sweetness to the flavors of raspberry and smoke. Fine-grained, classically dry wine with lovely tension and subtle spice character. Spreads out nicely on the supple back end. A bit Cote-Rotie-like.
