Wine Spectator 90 Pts. - "Supple and balanced, with pretty wild flower and raspberry aromas and sleek flavors of smoky red plum, herbes de Provence and loamy mineral. Grenache, Syrah, Counoise and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2020. " Robert Parker 90 Pts. -The Wine Advocate - "A year in, year out excellent value, the 2013 Cotes de Tablas (55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Counoise and 5% Mourvedre, raised mostly in foudre) offers pretty, juicy and lively aromas and flavors of crunchy black cherries, blackberries, peppery herbs, and underbrush. Medium-bodied, balanced and easy drinking, it still has the depth and class to evolve for a 7-8 years (I know as we had just finished an '05 retrospective)."
