Lightly rustic, with bramble and dried anise notes weaving throughout. The core of violet plum sauce and raspberry coulis is pure and vibrant, extending through a lengthy finish.  A fun, character filled wine. Niellucciu, Syrah and Grenache. 90 Points (Wine Spectator) & #72 Top 100 of 2017

Opens with a fresh green accent reminiscent of tomato leaf and sage, giving a savory, peppery note to the plush, velvety cassis and plum core. Finds balance between grace and power, with spice and herb elements lingering on the finish. 92 Points (Wine Spectator) & #58 Top 100 of 2018

Mosaic aromas that forge into the lavish palate: black spice, melted black licorice, black plum jam, black currants, dark cocoa, crushed rocks, coconut, freshly turned earth and cigar box. Balanced, complex and luxuriant, unfolding and evolving with each sip. 94 Points (Wine Advocate)

Emerges from the glass with beautifully delineated black fruit, flowers, mint, licorice and tar, all of which come together beautifully on a vibrant powerful frame. Shows remarkable freshness and vibrancy. It is a beautiful, totally classy wine. 93+ Points (Wine Advocate)

Profusion of aromas-crème de cassis, black cherry coulis, anise, violet, black olive, fresh herb and smoke spill out of the glass. Complex flavors echo the aroma with firm, well integrated tannins, vibrant acidity and a long, cocoa-mineral finish. 95 Points (Tasting Panel )
