WA 92 Pts - According to the Wine Advocate - The 2012 Cotes Catalanes Grenache D66 is a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Carignan that was brought up in small barrels, 30% being new. Full-bodied, rich, sexy and yet still with solid focus and length, it has fabulous kirsch, dried herbs, licorice and chocolaty nuances all soaring from the glass. Long, heady and hedonistic, enjoy this beauty over the coming 4-5 years.
Winemakers Notes - A deep, ruby complexion envelops the glass suggesting a mighty wine. It is perfumed with a tempting fusion of red and black fruits, mountain flowers, kirsch, herbes de Provence, and a wreath of new French oak. Silky and intensely rich, the palate is lead down a path of exotic flavors including blackberry, maraschino cherry, mocha, and raspberry puree. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan. 15.2% ABV.
