JAMES SUCKLING: 91 POINTS
Lovely, pure and bright fruit with plums, cherries and other berries. Medium body with fine tannins and attractive fruit on the finish. Just a hint of citrus and bitterness at the end makes this really interesting. 80% grenache, 7% syrah, 7% cabernet sauvignon and 6% merlot. .
