"91 points Robert Parker: "The opaque purple-hued 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Terre d’Argile (a blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Mourvedre) reveals a big, sweet perfume of creosote, licorice, blackberries, and kirsch. Full-bodied with layers of fruit and a remarkably long finish, it can be enjoyed now and over the next 4-6 years." (10/09) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Very inviting, with lush blueberry, fig sauce and blackberry fruit aromas and flavors, backed by alluring spice and black tea notes. The long, round, juicy finish is stylish as well. Drink now through 2010." (11/09) 15.5% abv."
