93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2012

(85% grenache, 10% mourvedre and 5% syrah):  Bright purple.  Exotic spice and potpourri scents accent intense red and dark berries on the seductively perfumed nose.  Sweet, expansive and energetic on the palate, offering an array of berry and floral flavors and silky texture.  Becomes spicier with air and finishes with outstanding energy, clarity and cling.  I find this delicious wine surprisingly approachable right now.
