The best I've tasted from the "Halos de Jupiter" series, this CdR Grenache blend is richer and deeper than the alternatives, with lovely fruit notes of buttery plum, violets, blueberry, and raspberry supported by earth, leather, pepper spice, and those characteristic herbal-savoury elements of southern France. What keeps it from being a 90 is the excessive alcohol burn (15.5%) on the finish, alongside a touch of bitterness that detracts from the otherwise excellent length, but as an expression of the Grenache varietal from a specific part of a specific country, these Halos really hit the mark.
