Our Review

This is an awesome Rhône blend, a blend that's been around for decades. The '05 is a good example, showing the variety's characteristic acidity and tannins, but it's so rich, it's almost dessert-like. Almost like a pastry, it has flavors of cherries, currants, raspberries, chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa and vanilla—it's delicious, but not a wine to drink alone.
