Wine Advocate | Rating: 97The 2014 Cuvee Chloe (67% Syrah and 33% Grenache) is another screaming good 2014 from this estate. A big, ripe, sexy and unctuously textured red that made me want to stop the tasting and just sit back and drink a glass, it offers classy notes of ripe blackberries, raspberries, roasted herbs, licorice and floral aromas and flavors. Already approachable and ready to go, drink this hedonistic, yet pure and impeccably balanced beauty over the coming 7-8 years.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
