91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
Bright violet. An exotic, pungent bouquet evokes black and blue fruits, pipe tobacco and apricot pit. Lush and creamy on entry, offering dense blackberry and mulberry flavors, then more taut in the middle, with good spicy cut adding vivacity. A sexy floral pastille note lingers on the long, sappy finish. Edmunds told me that this clocks in at 14% alcohol and that "it's just a bit more ripe" than he wanted. This blend of 50% syrah, 42% grenache and 8% mourvedre was raised completely in concrete.
