95 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$26 list] This blend of 45% Syrah, 39% Grenache, 9% Mourvèdre and 7% Counoise offers lush aromas of violet, lilac, lavender, vanilla and blueberry on the nose. The palate offers plenty of black currant and spice flavors, with sandy tannins and fresh acidity holding it all in check. Alcohol 14.9%. (Aug 2020)"

Producer notes: "[$26 list] While the 45% Syrah is still dominant on the palate, the 39% Grenache is the first to greet you on the nose, with aromas of maraschino cherries, licorice, and fresh wild herbs. The earthy mouthfeel is complemented by flavors of ripe blueberries, jammy red cherries, and juicy blackberries. The 9% Mourvedre and 7% Counoise lend a balance to the 2018 Cuvee le Bec, reflecting the complex layers brought about by different picks in the vineyard and various winemaking techniques. A true crowd pleaser! Drink now through 2038."
