91 points Vinous: "Pale gold. Mineral-accented orange, pear and white flowers on the perfumed nose, along with a gingery nuance that adds spicy lift. Taut citrus and orchard fruit flavors unfurl slowly and show hints of bitter quinine and anise that build slowly with air. Shows very good depth as well as energy on the finish, which echoes the mineral and citrus fruit notes. (JR)" (09/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Patelin de Tablas Blanc wafts from the glass with notes of rose water, preserved citrus and Provence herbs. On the...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also bottled the week before this tasting, the 2016 Soul of a Lion includes more Cabernet Sauvignon than the 2014 and 2015 and is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot. It’s an incredible achievement and has sensational notes of crème de cassis, graphite, violets, and lead pencil shavings. Made in a pure California, pedal-to-the-metal style, with full body and loads of fruit, it stays balanced, has ultra-fine tannins, and a layered, seamless style that just glides over the palate. Don’t think Paso Ro...

2017 Tablas Creek "Patelin de Tablas" Paso Robles Rhône Blend
Back In Stock!
90-92 points Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby. Perfumed aromas of ripe, spice-tinged dark berries and candied flowers pick up an exotic suggestion of apricot as the wine opens up. Silky and energetic in style, offering sappy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a suave touch of Asian spices. Takes a sweet turn on the gently tannic, persistent finish and leaves a note of candied flowers behind. (JR)" (09/2018) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a great core of black plum and dark berry to the nose of this blend of 48% Syrah, 32% Grenache, 16% Mou...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This flagship bottling is still a whopper of a wine. This vintage, a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 12% Merlot, offers barely ripe black cherry, green peppercorn and charred fennel on the nose. The palate is loaded with both savory and ripe flavors, from roasted black plums and charred beef to oregano and dill. Very complex and chalky in texture. (MK)" (04/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a measure of finesse and restraint given the size, which is big and expressive, offering notes of plum, bla...

91 points Vinous: "Youthful violet. Smoke-accented cherry and cassis qualities on the fragrant nose, along with a hint of toasty oak in the background. Juicy and energetic on the palate, showing spicy lift to the bitter cherry and dark berry flavors, which become deeper with air. Shows very good clarity and finishes with good, spicy tenacity and a touch of dusty tannins. (AG)" (09/2018) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Black plum and black cherry meet with dried fennel frond on the nose of this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 20% Petit Verdo...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Notes of crème de cassis, ground pepper, and crushed flowers emerge from the 2017 Fracture, which, as always, is all Syrah and was brought up in 65% new French oak barrels. Full-bodied, beautifully layered and textured, it has classic Booker power and richness yet shows the pretty, elegant style of the vintage as well." (10/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very light pink with a hint of yellow in the glass, this blend of 76% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 4% Counoise from nine vineyards offers aromas of chalky lemon and nectarine on the delicate nose. The texture is grippy with chalk on the palate, offering flavors of strawberry, pluot flesh and a spritz of citrus. (MK)" (06/2019) 91 points Vinous: "Light bright orange. Ripe red berries, nectarine, orange zest and a sexy floral quality on the perfumed nose. Silky in texture and well-concentrated, offering juicy citrus and pit fru...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 My Favorite Neighbor is also terrific and I suspect would cost 2-3 times its going rate if it was from Napa Valley. It's also the more elegant, perfumed, red-fruited release compared to the darker fruited Harvey and Harriet release. Classy notes of black raspberries, spice box, white flowers, lead pencil shavings, and tobacco leaf all emerge from the glass of this medium to full-bodied red, which offers a seamless texture, fine tannins, and a great finish." (10/2019) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A barrel...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A notch up on the richness scale, yet still impeccably balanced and light on the palate, the 2011 Estate Cuvee is 48% Syrah, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Petit Verdot. Deep, rich and layered, with thrilling cassis, blackberry, lead pencil, spice, spring flowers and smoke, it flows onto the palate with awesome purity, a straight focused profile and sweet tannin that emerge through the mid-palate and finish. This is not a blowsy, overdone effort, and is seamless and incredibly drinkable. It needs 2-3 years of bot...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Bottled in February of this year, the 100% Grenache 2017 Ripper has a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, white flowers, licorice, and subtle background oak. Rich and medium to full-bodied, it has wonderful purity, fine tannins, and a great finish." (10/2019)

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "(98+) The first vintage released under the Central Coast AVA, as it includes fruit from Bien Nacido, Hawks Hill, and Shadow Canyon, the 2016 Syrah Akasha is as always 100% Syrah that spent 22 months in 60% new French oak. This saturated purple-hued beauty boasts a phenomenal bouquet of black and blue fruits, scorched earth, ground pepper, bouquet garni, lavender, and crushed rocks. Rich, full-bodied, incredibly powerful and concentrated on the palate, yet also perfectly balanced, it has plenty of gamey, marine-like nuances as well...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a focused intensity of black plum, elderberry and black-cherry pie on the nose of this blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. A ripe black-cherry flavor meets with licorice, vanilla and fudge on the palate, where polished tannins provide ample structure. (MK)" (12/2018) K&L Notes: Jeb Dunnuck writes: "One of the original estates to focus on Bordeaux Varieties from Paso Robles, Justin Vineyards pulls from a number of estate vineyards and the wines are made by Fred Holloway and Sc...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Citizen checks in as 57% Syrah and 43% Petite Sirah that spent 22 months in 65% new French oak (mostly larger barrels). It has a sweet nose of jammy blackberries, incense, and ground pepper that gives way to a rich, plush, seamless red that has sweet tannin, a rounded, voluptuous texture and a great finish. It’s another awesome wine from winemaker Aaron Jackson." (11/2018) 95 points Vinous: " Vivid purple. Powerful, mineral-accented blackberry, blueberry and floral oil aromas are complemented by cola, licorice and woods...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Getting the remnants from the other cuvees, the 2012 Remnant (which was formerly called the Alchemist) is 35% Tempranillo, 25% Petit Verdot, 23% Syrah and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon that saw the standard 18 months in a combination of new and used French oak. Full-bodied, rich and voluptuous, with some serious texture and depth, it also has superb balance, notable underlying structure and integrated acidity, all of which keep it a joy to drink. Loaded with notions of blackberry, raspberry, smoke, roasted herbs...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 The Ripper (Grenache) is up with some of the greatest expressions of this variety in California. Aged in a combination of concrete and neutral demi-muids, it offers truly spectacular notes of kirsch, black berries, rose petals, licorice and herbes de Provence as well as a full-bodied, rich, voluptuous and unctuously textured feel on the palate. Possessing thrilling purity of fruit, tons of glycerin, superb concentration and a blockbuster finish, drink this hedonistic and sexy Grenache anytime over the co...

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Vertigo from barrel, and it didn’t disappoint from bottle. A blend of 63% Syrah, 30% Mourvèdre, and the rest Grenache and Petite Sirah, brought up in 65% new French oak, this full-bodied, massively endowed 2017 has complex notes of blue fruits, blood orange, violets, and exotic spices. As with all Eric’s 2017s, it’s rich and concentrated yet has remarkable purity and elegance at the same time." (10/2019)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Syrah James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock opens in the glass with complex aromas of ripe black fruits, rich spice, cracked pepper, licorice and savory notions of grilled meats. On the palate, it's full-bodied, fine-grained and intensely concentrated, with a firm, tight-knit core and unusual energy. The finish is long, precise and penetrating. While the 2011 vintage tends to be tainted by association with the challenges producers faced on California's North Coast, conditions were not so adverse in Paso Robles:...

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From Booker Vineyard, the 2016 Tempranillo is another killer wine, and I'd wager one of the best examples of the variety coming out of Paso. Focused, full-bodied, tight and with plenty of tannin, it has lots of cassis, cedar like spice and dried herb aromas and flavors." (08/2017)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Akasha (which I had incorrectly listed as James Berry Vineyard in the past) is 100% Syrah from Scott's estate Torrin Vineyard. It offers sensational purity and depth in its black raspberry and cassis fruits, graphite, dried violets and crushed rock bouquet. This gives way to a full-bodied, voluptuous and seamless Syrah that has no hard edges, building tannin and a blockbuster finish. (JD)" (08/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Glass-staining purple. Powerful, deeply pitched aromas of blackcurrant, violet, licor...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 48% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 37% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Vertigo is another blockbuster 2015 from Jensen. It’s deep ruby color is followed by a sweet bouquet of crème de cassis, black raspberries, strawberries, violets, and chocolaty oak. It’s a round, supple, incredibly sexy GSM that has full-bodied richness, loads of power and depth, yet also shows the more charming, forward style of the 2015 vintage in Paso Robles. Drink it anytime over the coming decade." (08/2017) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Comprised of...

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Firm, structured, and showing the coolness of the vintage beautifully, the 2010 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel (45% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and 4% Counoise) is a fresh, focused, and balanced red that has loads of crushed berry like fruit, licorice, sappy underbrush, and floral nuances, as well as superb underlying minerality, all emerging from the glass. Quite tight and firm on the palate, with excellent purity, juicy acidity, and a youthful, energetic feel, this will most likely require 3-5 years of bottle age o...

91 points Vinous: "One of the more immediate wines in this range, the 2013 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard offers plenty of intensity and richness, with bright veins of acidity that prop up the flavors nicely and balances some of the more overt elements in the glass. The exuberance of Paso comes through nicely. Hints of tobacco, menthol and licorice add nuance to a core of sweet red stone fruits. (AG)" (10/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Vivid aromas of smoky raspberry and cracked pepper combine with sleek flavors of dried cherry, sage and loam, gaining power...

90 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Oak-spiced cherry and blackberry on the deeply perfumed nose. Lush, sweet and broad on the palate, offering smoke-accented dark fruit flavors and a touch of mocha. Showing its oak, for sure, but there's a good amount of fruit here to back it up. Finishes smooth and long, with lingering smokiness and a hint of candied licorice." K&L Notes: Winemaking Notes: "This wine’s components seamlessly blend together, making for a delightful and exuberant experience. In the glass, the wine displays a deep and rich garnet, proclaiming...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inaugural vintage for the cuvee, the 2013 Fulldraw is made from 48% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 17% Mourvedre that saw roughly 40% new French oak. Coming from the younger vines on the estate, it's a rock-star effort that exhibits lots of black and blue fruits, violets, pepper and saline like minerality on both the nose and palate. Rich, full-bodied, textured and ready to go, drink this beauty over the coming 5-7 years. (JD)" (08/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Vivid purple. Potent, smoke-accented aromas of ripe cherry...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Checking in as a blend of 46% Grenache, 34% Mourvèdre and 20% Counoise that spent 24 months in barrel, the 2013 Oublie 24 offers an open, sexy style in its mulled red fruits, dried flowers, spice and dried soil aromas and flavors. Sporting a semi translucent ruby color, this full-bodied beauty has no hard edges, a beautiful core of sweet fruit, and an endearing hard to resist personality that will drink well for 5-7 years. (JD)" (08/2016)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Checking in as a final blend of 54% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 11% Mourvedre, the 2013 Heart Stone Vineyard shows the class and purity of the vintage in its complex, floral-laced aromas of dark fruits, spice and minerality. Full-bodied, seamless and silky, with no hard edges and terrific purity, it's another 2013 from Smith that will open up with another year in bottle. (JD)" (08/2016) 95 points Vinous: "Vibrant purple. Intensely perfumed scents of ripe black and blue fruits, incense and cola gain vivacity from a ...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate's entry-level wine that's always based on Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the 2013 Optimus offers lots of graphite, earth and peppery herbs to go with tons of red and black fruit characteristics. A full-bodied, rich and layered red that epitomizes Paso Robles, it has beautiful freshness, a silky texture and a great finish. (JD)" (08/2015) 91 points Vinous: "Saturated ruby. Sexy, expansive aromas of ripe red and dark berries, sandalwood and pipe tobacco. Seamless and appealingly sweet on t...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Blackberry, blueberries, tar, toasted spice, and chocolate notes all emerge from the 2016 Petite Sirah (there’s 12% Syrah in the blend) and it's ripe and polished on the palate, with full-bodied richness, silky tannins, and a great finish." (10/2019)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Seeing additional time in barrel (22 months to be exact), the 2015 Ripper 22 is the exact same wine as the traditional release yet saw additional time in older barrels. I always love tasting experiments like this; same juice, just a longer elevage. Is it better? Yes, it is. Offering similar kirsch liqueur, framboise, crushed flowers, candle wax and white pepper, it’s full-bodied, ethereally textured and perfectly balanced, with fine, building tannin and a great finish. It has another level of depth, and length, over the classic cu...

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Zinfandel Paso Robles is also very promising, offering up youthful primary aromas of ripe cherries and currants. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, with melting tannins and a pure, juicy, fruit-driven profile. In 2017, Ridge was able to pick their entire block of the Benito Dusi vineyard in one go, meaning that all the grapes arrived at the Monte Bello winery the day that they were harvested, and that will also be the practice going forward. While the ...

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another blockbuster barrel sample is the 2014 GSM Vertigo EXT, which is 68% Syrah, 26% Mourvedre and the rest Grenache (there's less Grenache than normal in the 2014). Violets, cassis, licorice and black raspberries all flow to a rich, concentrated blend that's much more supple, rounded and forward than the 2015, while still showing plenty of grip and focus. (JD)" (08/2016)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 73% Grenache, 23% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre, the 2014 The Pick Cuvée Willow Creek District has a pale to medium garnet-purple color and a meaty/savory nose of chargrill, charcuterie and damp soil over a core of baked cherries and warm plums, plus hints of sautéed herbs and leather. Full-bodied, plush, rich and with loads of savory layers, it delivers great expression and length. (LPB)" (12/2017)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Not yet bottled and tasted out of barrel, the 2010 Booker Vineyard Syrah Fracture is possibly the most impressive vintage of this to date. A blend of 100% Syrah that’s aged all in French oak, it delivers a stunning bouquet of smoked black fruits, toast, chocolate, roasted meats, and crushed flowers that gives way to a full-bodied, structured, and elegantly put together palate. Chewy, ripe tannin frames the finish beautifully, and this is impressive. It should benefit from short term cellaring on release, and have a fairly broad...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite again, however, remains the 2006 Syrah James Berry Vineyard. There is just something so delineated and complex about the wines from this site. Additionally, they seem to have more acidity, yet also the enormous richness and massive fruit extract. Blackberries, cassis, truffle, charcoal, and some subtle smoke are all present in this wine, which comes closest to a top-notch Hermitage from this area of Paso Robles. Long, rich, with striking minerality, this is a blockbuster Syrah that should age effortle...

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hold onto your hats with this one, the 2014 My Favorite Neighbor Proprietary Blend will see 24 months in barrel, and there will only be a single cuvee in 2014. This insanely good barrel sample gives up serious, inky, yet pure notes of violets, licorice, black raspberries, creme de cassis and graphite to go with building tannin, a stacked mid-palate and blockbuster length. I'd like to have a case of it in the cellar. (JD)" (08/2016)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 The Banshee Proprietary Blend is a big, full-flavored and intense wine that checks in as a blend of 40% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 25% Mourvedre. Aged 17 months in 30% new oak, with plenty of whole cluster, it has that same chalky minerality that is common in all of Scott's wines to go with lots of blueberry, black raspberry, herbes de Provence, tar and dried flowers. Savory, full-bodied, layered and beautifully made, with high-quality tannin, it's already drinking nicely, but will benefit from a few years ...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Tasted out of bottle and always 100% Grenache, the 2015 Ripper is smokin’ good effort in what was a difficult vintage. Brought up in a mix of concrete tanks and older, larger barrels, this beauty offers a ruby, transparent color to go with phenomenal notes of kirsch liqueur, wild strawberries, sappy flowers, violets and underbrush. A wine that just glides over the palate and shows no weight or heaviness, this full-bodied 2015 has perfect integration of its fruit, alcohol and tannin, no hard edges and an incredible finish." (08/201...

95 points from Robert Parker: "The 2004 Panoplie is a blend of 69% Mourvedre, 21% Grenache, and the rest mostly Syrah with a touch of Counoise. This wine is showing fabulously well out of bottle, with complex earthy, gamey, smoky notes of burning embers and charcoal as well as black cherry and black currant fruit. The wine is broad, full-bodied, powerful, and rich. It is a beautiful homage to the famed luxury cuvee called Jacques Perrin from Chateau Beaucastel. This wine should evolve for at least 12-15 or more years." (Aug. 2007) 94 points from Stephen ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More dense and rich, the 2010 Heart Stone Vineyard is a co-fermented blend of 51% Syrah and 49% Grenache that comes from a small 7-acre, south-facing vineyard located on the western side of Paso Robles. Aged mostly in large oak puncheons for 20-28 months, it offers up a savory, complex bouquet of kirsch and blackberry-like fruit, meat juice, Provencal herbs, dried licorice, and dusty minerality. Gorgeous on the palate as well, with a deft, elegant texture, building richness, and layers of chewy tannin, this beaut...

2014 Turley "Pesenti Vineyard" Paso Robles Zinfandel
Back In Stock!
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the pure white soils/limestone terroir emerges the 2014 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard (15.8% alcohol). This is a warm area, but with cold soils, and the result is one of the great classics of Zinfandel from the Central Coast. The intensity of flavor, the colossal richness and the full-bodied power are totally concealed beneath a cascade of fruit. This multidimensional wine reveals gorgeous minerality, loads of black and red fruits, and even a hint of spring flowers. This is a stunner that is layered, extremely ...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Lorraine offers more black fruits than normal, with plenty of Reva-like iodine, sagebrush, melted licorice, and smoked earth notes as well as more black olive and cassis with time in the glass. It has the classic silk and elegance on the palate, however, and offers a full-bodied, layered, voluptuous texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a blockbuster finish. As always, it’s the most seamless and elegant in the lineup. Drink it any time over the coming 20 years or more. Drink now-2038." (11/2018) 96 points Vinous: "Lurid viol...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Brought up in half new barrels, the 2017 Paderewski Vineyard has closed down substantially since I tasted it from barrel and is a big, rich, chewy effort as well as one of the more structured and tannic wines in the lineup. Loads of blueberry and mulberry fruits as well as notes of ground pepper, herbs, and graphite give way to a full-bodied 2017 that has good acidity, a more tight, backward feel on the palate, and a great finish. Hide bottles for 2-3 years." (10/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Deeply structured and brimming wi...

93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Deep, smoke-accented aromas of red and blue fruits, candied flowers and cracked pepper convey a slow-building mineral quality. At once rich and energetic, offering intense black raspberry and boysenberry compote flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Finishes spicy and impressively long, with velvety tannins arriving late and adding gentle grip. (JR)" (09/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Dried red cherries, dark strawberry, mulberry, light baking spice and freshly cracked pepper show on the nose of thi...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Esprit de Beaucastel flows with sweet dark cherries, flowers, tobacco and spices. It is a beautiful, classically built wine graced with striking inner perfume, lovely mid-palate juiciness and a round, utterly harmonious finish. Well-integrated, silky tannins linger on the close. This is a fabulous wine from Tablas Creek. My sense is that the wine should be tasted upon release and then again only after a number of years in bottle. In 2008 the blend is 38% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 26% Syrah and 6% Counoise...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to 2015 reds, of which there are just two I hadn’t tasted from bottle, the 2015 Esprit de Tablas checks in as a blend of 49% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and the rest Counoise that spent 22 months in larger, neutral oak foudres. This layered, ripe, even sexy red offers impressive notes of kirsch and blackberry fruits, notes of lavender, spice, and flowers, full body, and a textured, lengthy, pure finish. It will keep for 15+ years, although it will be approachable with just short-term cellaring." (11/2018) 92 point...


95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Tsundere is the only wine to includes any Bordeaux varieties and is 39% Syrah, 27% Tannat, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Grenache, all from the Will Creek District of Paso Robles. Smoky black cherries, blackberries, leafy herbs, cedar, and some meatiness and tobacco notes all emerge from this ripe, full-bodied, sexy yet incredibly elegant blend. It should be reasonably approachable on release, yet I suspect it will benefit from short-term cellaring." (10/2019)

94-96 points Vinous: "A rich, ample wine, the 2012 Panoplie is also a great example of the year. Here the fruit is sweet and textured to the core, yet there is plenty of underlying energy in support. The textured, explosive finish is a thing of beauty. I expect the 2012 to be compelling pretty much upon release. Actually, it already is. (AG)" (07/2014) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top wine of the estate and the least impressive Panoplie I've tasted, the 2012 Panoplie (70% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache and 10% Syrah) offers a darker slant to ...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 33% Grenache, 32% Mourvèdre, 24% Syrah and 11% Counoise, the 2015 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red reveals a deep garnet-purple color and expressive nose of black currants, black cherries and mulberries with hints of baking spices, chocolate box, violets and Sichuan pepper. The palate is surprisingly elegant, with great intensity of flavors framed by soft, sensuous tannins and a lively line carrying the fruit and spices to a long, long finish. (LPB)" (09/2017) 97 points Vinous: "Glass-staining rub...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red is made from 45% Grenache, 29% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah and 8% Counoise (which Justin commented was a blend that was put together relatively late). It saw a big chunk of whole cluster (the Grenache was mostly destemmed though) and was brought up all in puncheons and foudre (the normal concrete component went to the Rocket Block). It offers up gorgeous notes of black raspberries, cherries, cassis, ground herbs and flowers. This beauty hits the palate with incredible purity...
