Tasting Notes

A blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, the 2010 Alphilles is a beauty! Aged 24 months in primarily foudre (5% in barrel), it sports an inky, opaque color as well as a deep, raw bouquet of cassis, liquid herbs, olive tapenade, blood and serious minerality that continues to change and evolve over the evening. Medium to full-bodied and surprisingly elegant and pure on the palate, it possesses perfect balance, fine tannin and lively acidity that shines on the finish. Gorgeous all around, yet still a baby, it needs another year or three of bottle age and will evolve gracefully for 12-15+ years. Drink 2015-2025.
