90 Points!  This blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah aged in concrete and demi-muid is a custom cuvée from importer Eric Solomon. Made from very old head-pruned vines that are not irrigated in pure slate soils, some of the vines are close to 100 years of age. This is really an amazing wine for the price. It is a fruit bomb, so those not wanting flavor, or in search of wimpy wines need to consider a light beer. Deep ruby/plum purple, with loads of blueberry and black currant fruit, underlying crushed rock notes and some floral scents are all present in this remarkable wine that sells at a full retail markup of $10.00, which is simply incredible! These are the kind of wines I wish had existed when I was in college.  Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com #Interim July, July 2015
90 Points! Brilliant ruby. Smoky, spice-accented blueberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of candied violet and white pepper. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors enlivened by juicy acidity. The floral note repeats emphatically on the long, gently tannic finish, which leaves allspice and blue fruit notes behind. These vines, many of which are reportedly more than a century old, are planted between 850 and 950 meters above sea level. The wine is a remarkable value as it offers the fruit intensity and floral complexity of many wines that cost easily two or three times the price.
