WA 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - Also outstanding, the 2010 Flux includes 67% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 13% Syrah in the blend. Truly a Rhone Ranger cuvee, it is a sexy, lush, heady effort displaying peppery black currants and cherries intermixed with charcuterie, bouquet garni and meaty notes. Drink this delicious wine over the next 3-4 years as well.
According to Antonio Galloni - The Grenache-based 2010 Flux bursts from the glass with racy red berries, sweet spices and flowers. Juicy and exuberant, the 2010 isn’t a shy wine, but it is loaded with character. The French oak is maybe a bit dominant, but it is hard not to love the 2010 Flux for its sheer exuberance. The 2010 is a delicious wine to drink now and over the next few years.
