93 Points

Sunday, February 3, 2013 - Decanted for 90 minutes. Dark purple color. Nose of garrigue, black pepper, blackberry, olive tampenade, thyme. Sweet, peppery, hearty black fruits on the palate with quite ample acidity and firm tannins, layered with earth, stone, and licorice. Long finish with a bit of heat but also lovely red plum fruit and briars. Lots of grip at the end. Classic mourvedre-based CdP showing very well early in its drinking window.
