Was frankly stunned by the elegance and freshness here, particularly given my own review of the ‘07 earlier this year, which was not nearly so giving. Vintage (and bottle) variation are real. In any case this was really beautiful and walked that delicate balance between refined grace and animal / rustic notes that I love, with firm but smooth tannins — 10 days ago
Tastes of strawberries and peach, not too sweet, bit acidic. Easy to drink. Would bring to friends nights. — 11 days ago
Always a good purchase.
Prune juice nose with a bit of pomegranate mixed in,
Medium bodied, with lovely baked pie layers, fresh pie dough, currant filing, hint of lemon zest, with just enough popsicle stick tannin to carry this on.
Always a great purchase. — 11 days ago
Pretty complex - as you’d expect with a 5-varietal blend. Just opened it - a little tight still. But I think it will be very good in an hour. — 2 hours ago

"the geology and elevation give bright aromatics in fresh toothsome flavors to this rose wine, a hand-harvested blend of Cinsault 40%, Grenache 30%, Syrah 20%, Mourvedre 10%. It's rose but it's not your typical pinkish hue. It's paler, like wallpaper bleached by the sun. you will find hints of black fruit, a product of the razor sharp schist rock that makes up the top layer of soil in this region. aficionados of the language dark region instantly spot that telltale trace of garrigue - the bushy fragrant vegetation that grows on the Mediterranean." — 18 days ago
