WA 90 Pts - Winemaker Notes - A deep, concentrated colour. The complex aromas of black fruit come from the carefully controlled extraction during vinification and from the exceptional ripeness of the grapes. A wine of distinctive character with all the flavours of ripe fruit, with subtle hints of spices and liquorice. Its full, fat body lends it a remarkable elegance.
According to the Wine Advocate - A smoking value, the 2011 Corbieres Terroir offers pretty lead pencil, tobacco leaf and blackcurrant-styled aromas and flavors to go with a medium to full-bodied, rounded and supple profile on the palate. Showing more spice and cedar with air, this outstanding blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, which spent 12 months in 40% new French oak, should drink nicely for 3-5 years, if not longer.
