Ranked the #17 Red Wine at our March 25, 2017 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.

Big and bold, with smoky, spicy black cherry, cassis and garrigue aromas. Full-bodied, with a long finish. Excellent with grilled meats and vegetables.

Wine AdvocateMoving to the red, which was not bottled at the time of this tasting, the 2013 Cotes Catalanes checks in as a blend of 60% Grenache and 20% each of Syrah and Carignan. Aged all in tank and coming from 50-year-old vines, it offers a spectacular bouquet of black raspberry, black cherry, sappy herbs, leather and hints of crushed rock that flows to a medium-bodied, pure, layered and balanced feel on the palate. I love the overall purity here, and it has solid mid-palate depth and a great finish. It should be a multiple bottle purchase, and should drink nicely for 3-5 years.
