If you can find this one at your local LCBO Vintages, buy what they have left. The wine has been marked down to $11.25 which is a real bargain.

Deep, concentrated purple colour in the glass. Black pepper and black fruits on the nose. Taste offers spice, pepper, cedar, and dark berries all in good balance. Didin't expect a lot but delivered more. Has a synthetic cork, so cellar standing up, or drink now. (tasted Jun 2011)

This wine is an incredible pleasure, especially for the price. Sorry that I am at the last of this because the stock is critically low. Well-Priced at $14.95, even better at $11.45! 70% Grenache / 30% Syrah. It is quite complex with ripe red and black fruit, spicy and slightly herbal, nicely balanced.

Very ripe, typical modern expression of southern France red without sacrificing its regional character. Notes of blackberries and spice with supporting tannin. Fairly priced at about $14.45 when first released, a steal on sale at $11.45. Gassier wines always seem to hit the mark.
