92 Points Robert Parker
This dark ruby/purple-colored wine displays the essence of cherry, kirsch, and Provencal herbs in its nose. Quite full-bodied, this large, fleshy wine reveals corpulent, sweet, expansive, rich flavors that linger on the palate. It is a lavishly rich Cotes du Rhone, with a thick texture and enough alcohol and soft tannin to keep it going for a minimum of 8-12 years. A great bargain.
