IWC 89 Pts - According to Stephen Tanzer - Bright ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry, smoke and game are lifted by a peppery quality. Fat, sweet and rich, but with sound acidity giving shape and verve to the concentrated black fruit and gunflint flavors. Finishes with a solid tannic spine. This makes the 2011 seem a bit dry by comparison. An excellent value.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2012 The Pepper Pot is a blend of 72% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, Cinsault and Tannat. It has a rounded red currant, cassis and violet-scented bouquet that becomes more floral with aeration. The palate is very sweet on the entry with dark cherries, blackberry and a touch of sour lemon, leading to a fleshy but uncomplicated finish. Fine. Drink now-2016.
