"The 2011 Grenache Dark Blossom is probably the best Grenache-based blend in the vintage. A blend of 75% Grenache, 12.5% Syrah, 11.5% Mourvedre and a splash of Roussanne (fermented with 11% whole clusters), it has a perfumed, complex style, with notions of black raspberry, cassis, dried flowers, white pepper and licorice giving way to a full-bodied, layered and seamless mouthfeel. Thereís no shortage of fruit here, and while itís hard to resist now, it has enough tannin to warrant short-term cellaring. It should knock it out of the park through 2029." - Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com #214 (Aug 2014)

"The 2011 Syrah Dark Blossom showed even better from bottle than barrel. A blend of 84% Syrah, 8% Grenache, 4% Petite Sirah and the rest Roussanne and Petite Manseng, this beauty was fermented with 17% whole clusters and aged in equal parts new and used French oak. One of the shining successes in the vintage, itís a full-bodied, concentrated and layered Syrah that has awesome aromatics of blackcurrants, Peking duck, pepper, licorice and charcuterie in its seamless, thrillingly pure profile. As with Manfredís other 2011s, the tannins are certainly present, yet theyíre sweet, polished and have no hard edges. Give this beauty 2-3 years in the cellar and enjoy bottles through 2031." - Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertParker.com #214 (Aug 2014)
