Wine Advocate

It offers up vaguely floral and stone-fruit notes alongside blueberry and blackberry flavors.

Wine Enthusiast

Hints of anise and roasted meat accent ripe black plum and cassis in this Syrah amplified by 5% each of Grenache and Carignan. Full bodied and plump in mouthfeel, it finishes on fine-grained tannins and a whisper of char. It's an approachably fruity but elegant wine for everyday.
