Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89-91

The Donelan 2008 Cuvee Moriah is a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah. Tyler Thomas used most of the stems, just as Pax Mahle did in 2007. The 2008 exhibits a slightly darker color as well as loads of raspberry and kirsch notes intermixed with lavender, earth, pepper, and spice. It, too, should be consumed during its first 4-5 years of life. If the 2007 tastes like a high-class Cotes du Rhone, the 2008 resembles a Chateauneuf du Pape given its denser, fuller style. Both are beautiful efforts that tip the scale at 15+% alcohol.

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.
