Has some reserved, sanguine notes and an essence-like, raspberry core. Some stones and chalk here, too. Very long and focused palate. The grenache is singing here. Dense but soft and supple tannins, the product of thick, healthy skins. 

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Packed with sultry black cherry and blackberry flavors edged by pepper and licorice. Fine, feathery tannins make it approachable in youth, but it's a wine that should improve through 2030 and hold longer still.

AI, Wine Enthusiast.

Red currants, lavender, salty minerality, nori, and plenty of peppery garrigue notes emerge from the glass. It's medium to full-bodied, has the sunny, sexy style of the vintage, yet also builds nicely on the palate, with ripe yet present tannins. 

Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com

Brilliant ruby. Powerfully scented aromas of ripe raspberry, blueberry, potpourri and garrigue, along with an exotic spice nuance that builds as the wine opens up. Subtly chewy and expansive in the mouth, showing impressive energy to its intense, mineral-laced red and blue fruit preserve, candied lavender and spice cake flavors. Finishes sappy and impressively long, with resonating spice and floral notes and harmonious tannins adding gentle grip. 

Josh Raynolds, Vinous.

Steeped red currant, plum and raspberry fruit splays out, while light lavender, black tea and singed juniper accents fill in. A juniper thread laces up the finish, lending definition while the fruit pumps through.

James Molesworth, Wine Spectator.

Fresh, vibrant and zesty, with notes of roses, tea, raspberries and blood oranges. 

Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate.
