#75 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Color : deep red garnet

Nose : black cherries.

critical acclaim:

“A muscular red, with concentrated flavors of dark cherry, plum, raspberry tart and grilled fig. The dense finish of dark chocolate is firm and focused, with smoky notes. Best from 2010 through 2014. 15,000 cases made.”

Mouth : well-structured with sweet meaty tannins.The wine had the heat and wildness of the Roussillon area
