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

(100% grenache):  Bright ruby.  Exotically perfumed bouquet displays candied raspberry, lavender, rose and cola, with smoke and pepper notes that build with air.  Deeply pitched but energetic on the palate, offering intense red and dark berry flavors and suggestions of spicecake and floral pastilles.  Finishes sweet and long, with resonating spice and floral notes.
