A cut above most Côtes-du-Rhônes in structure and complexity, this offering shows notes of sweet and spicy berries, violets, and a touch of licorice. Pairs well with beef stew or macaroni and cheese.
Vinous 91 (2016)- Lurid ruby. Ripe cherries and red berry liqueur on the deeply perfumed, spicetinged nose. Shows impressive power and breadth on the palate, offering rich black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors complicated by hints of lavender and peppery spices. The smooth, gently tannic finish delivers solid punch and repeating red berry and floral notes.
Wine Spectator 91 (2016)- Polished, accessible; cherry, cassis, dark olive, bay leaf.
