RATINGS

94Robert M. Parker Jr.

Sweet licorice, blackberry and charcoal notes are followed by a wine with great intensity, sweet silky tannins and an unctuously textured, opulent mouthfeel.

92Vinous / IWC

Enticing, aromatic nose offers red and dark berry preserves, smoky herbs, incense and a strong floral quality.

TYPE

Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
