Winemakers Notes: Optimum growing conditions with a crowning harvest mark the 2014 vintage. A saturated cardinal hue belted in garnet is revealed in the glass. The nose brims with an impeccable oak profile with shaded oak tree accents. A mineral cast of alluvial soil can be detected as well, which frames a vibrant perfume of red berry fruits, cassis, cardamom, and exotic spices. The entry bursts with a vibrant blueberry and cassis concentrate that is rounded out with the richness of a creme brulee, or crema catalana. The mid palate has vibrant acidity with distinctive mineral notes of garrigue, stone, and schist. Closing with purpose, the wine boasts silky tannins and a lengthy finish of sublime richness. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and a splash of Carignan, the 2014 Cotes Catalanes Grenache D66 IGP spent ten months in roughly 30% new barrels. This inky colored, downright sexy 2014 offers terrific notes of blueberries, blackberries, violets and chalky minerality. Big, concentrated and textured, yet still playing in the more elegant style of the 2014 vintage, this beauty will drink well for a decade."


Wine & Spirits - "Dave Phinney, the winemaker who founded The Prisoner and Orin Swift, bought a vineyard in Maury in 2008 and built a winery the next year. He now farms more than 300 acres of vineyards in the region’s black schist, most of the vines over 60 years old. This wine, a blend of grenache with small amounts of syrah and carignan, starts out intensely sweet, the cherry fruit as ripe and dense as jam. But if you decant it, a low growl of tannins emerge alongside an earthy minerality that firms it up. It tastes, in fact, like a dry wine from a sweet-wine appellation, an intriguing bottle to open with spicy lamb sausages or boar chops."
