September 27, 2014 - Lovely black fruit aromas dominate the nose, there's a little rose petal note with time in the glass and a tarry character too. Great balance of sweet black fruit and a savoury bite from the tannins. Quite a luxurious mouthfeel and layers of flavour. Excellent value at £10.

March 12, 2014 - it's the garnacha y syrah I'm writing about...
cloves, wild strawberries, raspberries, earth, freaky blueberry and brambles, plum liqueur, pepper, even dried plum, dust, minerals...energy drink...
there you go:
perfect weather+terroir+proper varietal (grenache)+vieilles vignes= a wonderful wine!
P.S. don't DECANT this wine! Just drink it up!

November 2, 2013 - Another eric solomon gem. IF you like southern Rhone style wine buy this. Barnyard funk laced red rasberries, strawberries and spices. Again if you like this style its the best $10 wine I have had in a long long time

September 13, 2013 - Color was a bright brick red with a pale rim. Spices, earthiness, black olives and hints of sweetness on the nose. A lot of acidity and good amount of tannins. Great QPR.

October 19, 2012 - Tangy fruit, slight natural tannins, chalk, minerality, fairly long finish. Develops well after an hour or so. Old vine fruit taste comes through nicely. Great value, highly recommended.
