Reviews/Information
"86 out of 100…Another austere effort is the blend of Grenache (88%), Syrah, Mourvedre, Counoise, and Roussanne, the elegant 2006 Cuvee Moriah (100% whole clusters). It offers up sweet aromas of kirsch, licorice, and spice box, but narrows out in the mouth. The wine is medium-bodied, with noticeable acidity as well as an angularity that is somewhat worrisome. It is not at the high level of quality expected from this estate." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate

"92 out of 100....Dark red. Strikingly fresh and pure bouquet of strawberry, raspberry and dried flowers; smells like pinot noir. Clean and brisk, with a silky texture, sweet red berry flavors and soft tannins. Becomes chewier on the finish but maintains admirable finesse and clarity, closing with tangy mineral lift. Pretty suave stuff. - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"87 out of 100...Very ripe and racy, almost pruny, with lively wild berry and blackberry fruit that's appealing, yet leaves you hoping for a shade more depth from midpalate on. Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Counoise and Roussanne. Drink now through 2012. 510 cases made." - Wine Spectator
