95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2012
(82% grenache, 14% syrah, 2% viognier and 2% roussanne all from the Eleven Confessions vineyard; fermented with 32% whole clusters; 15% new oak and 15.8% alcohol): Opaque purple. Blackberry, blueberry, incense and potpourri on the heady, powerfully scented nose. Offers a wild array of dark fruit and floral flavors, with intense spiciness and a lush, velvety texture. This wine completely stains the palate yet comes off as shockingly lithe, with the sweet, spicy finish featuring fully absorbed tannins.
