Expert Reviews

90 Points | International Wine Cellar , July 2014

(62% mourvedre, 18% cinsault, 16% grenache and 4% rolle):  Light, bright orange.  Musky, mineral-accented aromas of red berries, cherry pit and orange pith, with a subtle note of lavender emerging with aeration.  Shows very good depth and energy, offering juicy red fruit flavors and a touch of bitter peach pit.  Finishes supple and long, with building spiciness and an echo of candied flowers.
