Big Bold Red
Vinous 91 Pts.
"Brilliant violet. Blackberry, boysenberry, violet, olive and a hint of cracked pepper on the fragrant nose. Clean and racy in style, offering gently sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors and a subtle mineral nuance that builds as the wine opens up. Silky tannins lend shape to a spicy, nicely persistent finish, which leaves behind repeating floral and spice notes. From the tiny section of the appellation that lies just south of Saint-Péray. - Josh Raynolds" - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (September 2019), 91 pts
