"An almost clear green in coulour, having fresh fruit and vanilla on the nose, with a soft and round finish on the palate."
"89 Pts. W&S. This blend of Merlot, Syrah, and Cab Franc over-delivers at this price. A plush, dark plum-scented wine with sweet oak accents. The flavors are cool and fine, the tannins possessing a peppery bite that screams for a steak."
"Ripe and pure mixed berry fruit, spice, beautiful creamy vanilla oak laid on thick, a musky perfume - aromatically highly appealing. It's full bodied with a flood of smooth flavour and creamy silky tannin that spreads out on the finish, becoming more open weave and prominent. Additional flavours of Barossa coal, meat and soy, but it's the seductive choc-berry fruit and oak flavours that carry the day. Delicious. Exemplary modern day Barossa Shiraz."
"60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, the 2009 Costieres de Nimes Cuvee Tradition possesses a dark ruby hue, excellent fruit, as well as some spicy herbs, pepper and earthiness. Consume it over the next 2-3 years."
"It shines wrapped in a large straw yellow color with green reflections. The nose is characterized by ripe pineapple, cyclamen and aromatic herbs. It is very strong at the taste, with a good structure and an important salty aspect. Flexes its muscles in the mouth and is well structured in flavor. Lingering finish"
"Intense garnet red color of beautiful hue. Aromas of dried fruit and jam mixed with vanilla and green pepper. In the mouth has a great texture, with noticeable tannins, sweet and velvety. The taste is full, warm and ethereal."
"Furque's Syrah is produced from their 30 year-old vine arbors, located on a sandy-soiled terroir in Uco Valley. This very intense violet-red wine offers developped aromas of berries, leather, smoke and tobacco. With balanced tannins, the finish is long and persistent."
"Made from Syrah, Tempranillo, and Grenache, this wine is big, rich and complex. The aromas carry through to the palate; raspberry, blueberry pie, tobacco, maple syrup, soy sauce, crushed autumn leaves, and black pepper are all wrapped up in a nicely structured package. It has a meaty, earthy component, and bold chewy tannins. The finish is full and fleshy, long and silky."
"94 pts Wine Spectator Bottle Price Reflects Case discount....... A very rich, authoritative style, with broad structure and lots of cocoa and dark fig paste notes leading the way for ample charcoal, roasted alder, espresso and steeped black currant fruit. Rich and long, this has the depth for cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2024."
"Intense, ruby-red in color with a bouquet dominated by fresh ripe fruits such as berries and spicy notes associated with components in the oak barrels. Medium-bodied, very silky, and well-balanced with good acidity that lends a fresh sensation. Long and pleasing on the finish."
