Wine Spectator 92
"Seductive notes of violet, cherry and lilac are up front in this perfumed red, backed by graphite shavings and chalky fine tannins that drive surprising length. Ripe and supple, this is a forward style yet carries its opulence well. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2028. 400 cases made, 75 cases imported.Kristen Bieler"
