Not quite the 94RP that stands on the sticker but say a solid 89p to me. Concentration but not by any means heavy or lacking structure. Bit flat and lacking complexity to be a excellent but worked great with flank steak. Has stuffing to improve so I'd wait 1-2 years to see how it develops. Good qpr.

A very enjoyable and easy drinking red blend from France. Showing cherries, raspberries, light wood, earth, light vegetables, licorice, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy finish with round tannins. Fruit forward and spicy with mild complexity.

Good right out of the bottle and better after an hour in a decanter.

94 Points Robert Parker. I don't know about that 😂

A blend of 30% Grenache and 70% Syrah.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

Fantastic value. Expressive nose, dark fruit driven, layers of blackberries, liquorice, raspberries. Good body and fine finish, mouthfilling.

@Rick Zywotko thanks for the recommendation here. @$14 this is an incredible value. Advocate says 94 and if taking into account the QPR, i agree. Needs a little time but nearly pnp. Complex and layered with chocolatey tannins, dark red fruits all wrapped up in a velvety mouthfeel. $14! Glad we have a bunch more of these waiting.

Not a 94 but solid 88-89. Cherry, prune juice, blackberry on the nose. Cherry, blackberry, baking spices, medium bodied, moderate acidity and supple tannins. Decent finish. Good quality to price ratio here.
