Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2008 Collaboration III was made by Mark McNeilly. It is 100% Ciel du Cheval Syrah aged in 34% new oak for 15 months. Earthy minerals, smoked meat, game, lavender, plum, and blueberry notes are followed by a dense, succulent, plush wine that marries power and elegance. This nicely proportioned wine will be at its best from 2012 to 2020.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Tangy, displaying a burr of tannin under the saddle of effusive guava and rhubarb fruit, balanced with hints of coffee and cassis. All of this slides into a long, expressive finish. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Viognier and Roussanne.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend

"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
