"Gorgeous violet and lavender perfumes mingle into blueberry and cassis in this lavishly textured 50–50 blend of Grenache and Syrah. It's full bodied and juicy but balanced too, etched by fresh red-currant acidity and fine, soft tannins. A whisper of licorice lingers on the finish. Lovely in its youth, this should drink well through 2028." *Editor's Choice*
