Blackcurrants, blackberries, walnuts and ground spices on the nose. A little earthy, too. Sleek and refined with medium to full body. Tannins are fine-grained and melted into the wine. Smooth and even with a lingering finish. Better from 2026.

Score: 93 | December 13, 2023 | James Suckling

A solid red with cherries, violets and earth on the nose and palate. Medium body with chewy tannins. Herbs and wild berries on the palate and a savory finish. Try after two to three years to soften the tannins.

This concentrated wine is firm in structure and not too full bodied, deep in black cherries, cranberries and black currants. It's an old school, agile Cabernet that needs time to be fully enjoyable with a lamb chop or skirt steak. Best from 2027. - Jim Gordon

Medium salmon in hue, the nose of this rosé offers rhubarb, rose water and a savory edge. It is round on the palate with a midpalate of sweet spices. Its pithy and saline finish will leave you craving another glass to be enjoyed either ocean side or by the pool till sunset. — Anna-Christina Cabrales

Deep sanguine in hue, this wine opens with ripe strawberry, baked rhubarb, pomegranate and quince with a pretty overlay of rose petals. Freshly picked mushrooms and thyme stems with a fine vein of vanilla appear with aeration. A stone layer first coats the palate, followed by perfectly ripe strawberries, which linger along the midpalate and grow juicier from its acidic lift. Fine tannins persist in its long finish and gives way to a soft peppercorn-clove finish that frames the fruit beautifully. — Anna-Christina Cabrales

This is a flavorful, substantive wine. Fully ripe berries and cherries fill up the aroma before a full body, dark chocolate and black cherries take over the palate, backed by moderate tannins.

Not yet bottled, the 2022 Vacqueyras is a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the balance Mourvèdre that's aging all in tank. Red, blue, and black fruits, as well as peppery, floral, and minty garrigue notes, all define the aromatics, and it's medium-bodied, has plenty of fruit, and fine tannins.

Score: 90 | October 30, 2023 | Jeb Dunnuck

Mulled black cherries, chocolaty herbs, licorice, and peppery notes all emerge from the 2021 Vacqueyras, another ripe, moderately concentrated, yet beautifully textured, charming, satisfying 2021 from this terrific appellation. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre that was brought up all in tank, it's perfect for drinking over the coming 5-7 years.

Score: 90-92 | October 30, 2023 | Jeb Dunnuck

The 2022 Châteauneuf Du Pape Crau Des Papes (60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre) comes all from pebbly soils and is brought up entirely in concrete tank. It has classic darker berry and peppery herbs as well as some subtle iron and nori notes in its medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, elegant profile. The tannins here are nicely integrated, and it has a beautiful sense of freshness as well as solid mid-palate depth.
