Talk about heft. This weighs in at 15-per-cent alcohol and blatantly reveals the ripe opulence of the sunny 2010 vintage. A mix of grenache with syrah from one of the finest appellations in the southern Rhône, it’s voluptuous. The alcohol only barely peeks through the thick wall of dark-skinned fruit, which is coated in tar, licorice and herbs (figuratively speaking). Big and accessible now, it’s got the structure to improve for, oh, about eight years. Available in Ontario.
