93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(30% each of grenache and mourvedre and 10% each of counoise and syrah, with the balance spread across the other nine permitted varieties):  Bright ruby.  Perfumed, expressive aromas of red and dark berry preserves, smoky herbs and lavender, with a touch of licorice adding depth.  Fleshy and supple in texture, offering intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors lifted by a spicy quality.  Shows the richness of the vintage but carries no excess fat.  The finish lingers with impressive tenacity and echoes the floral and smoke notes.
