A blend of 40% Syrah, 38% Mourvedre and 22% Grenache aged in half new and half one-year-old barrels, the 2011 Cote a Cote is stunning. Full-bodied and decadent, yet oh so light on its feet and even elegant, it offers classic Paso fruit, smoked meat, chocolate and licorice as well as a seamless feel, sweet tannin and a blockbuster finish. It will have 10-12 years of ultimate longevity. Drink now-2023. (JD)
(40% syrah, 38% mourvedre and 22% grenache): Inky ruby. Heady aromas of black raspberry, blueberry and incense, with a hint of pipe tobacco in the background. Sappy, rich and seamless in texture, offering intense dark berry compote, licorice and black olive flavors that become spicier with air. Closes on a smoky note, with excellent clarity and breadth and silky, fully absorbed tannins. (JR)
Dark red cherry, plum, cloves and menthol all flesh out in the Côte à Côte, a blend of 40% Syrah, 38% Mourvèdre and 22% Grenache. Pliant and expressive on the palate, the 2011 offers lovely depth and juiciness but with the restraint that is the hallmark of this long, cool growing season. With time in the glass, the 2011 turns darker and spicier. This is a gorgeous wine from L'Aventure. (AG)
