84 points "Tasty, with berries, black pepper and cola flavors veering toward the savory and beefy side. Well-balanced and ripe on a medium frame. Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. Drink now. 5,700 cases made."

"38% grenache, 35% syrah, 12% mourvedre, 8% carignane and 7% cinsaut. Deep red. Smoky aromas of raspberry, cherry, herbs and flowers are complemented by minerality. Midweight red berry and sweet cherry flavors are given spine by gentle acidity and silky tannins. The red fruit takes a darker turn on the finish, which leaves black raspberry and succulent herbs behind. Reminds me of an easygoing Gigondas; this is ready to drink."
