  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($40; 50% grenache, 42% mourvedre and 8% syrah) Good bright ruby-red. Highly aromatic nose offers black raspberry, leather and pepper, plus a sexy herbal element reminiscent of garrigue Suave and sweet, with a fairly lush texture lifted by strongly spicy/herbal notes of black pepper and fennel. Offers a silky mouthfeel but boasts serious underlying structure. Today the fruit is in the background, but this wine has a lot of life. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and good peppery lift. Bob Betz used a lot more mourvedre in this blend than in 2004 and it's obvious in the wine's peppery, spicy character.
