Wine Advocate"A classic blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah. It's loaded with raspberry fruit and hints of baking spices (30% of the blend ages in wood). Full-bodied, supple and lush, it's also concentrated, rich and velvety in texture, with notes of clove and cinnamon lingering on the finish."
