    Like a great thriller, this gorgeous 2015 takes you on a wild ride with countless twists and turns, culminating in a long, lingering, and immensely satisfying finish. Densely packed with black and red fruits, it could easily be mistaken for a top-tier Châteauneuf (think: Pégaü, Usseglio, or Clos des Papes). High-toned, expressive, and accented with exotic spice it reveals flavors of clove, mint, eucalyptus, and bramble. All of its many parts work in perfect unison. There's ample body and structure for serious long-term aging, but who can wait?! This Vaucluse is a such a delight to drink now, it is impossible to resist. While the price may seem a bit hefty for this lesser known appellation, rest assured it is worth every penny. Pick up a few bottles for now and a few more for ten to fifteen years down the road — you'll be glad you did.

    Wow. This wine totally lives up to the hype. The nose is full of garrigue, violets, and gamey fruit--there must be plenty of Mourvedre in the blend. On the palate, the tannin structure was tuned perfectly, present and complimentary, not nearly as rough and extracted as other Southern Rhones I've tasted recently. The fruit expression is totally gorgeous. Medium weight with plenty of acid, this wine is spicy and focused with intense, pure fruit. Hell of a wine.

    What a seductive nose on this beauty! Straight from the glass aromas of crushed geranium, allspice, clove, minced meat and dark berry accents all whaff from the very first swirl. This is one sexy wine that deftly combines gorgeous fruit with garrigue notes while being impeccable balance as well as a perfect synthesis of old and new world styles. This is a flat-out delicious wine.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2028
