"Deep garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2009 Les Amis displays wonderfully fragrant aromas of raspberry preserves, warm red currants and mulberries with nuances of potpourri, mandarin peel and oolong tea. Opulently fruited, rich, full and seductive in the mouth, the voluptuous fruit is well structured with crisp acid and a medium to firm level of velvety tannins, finishing long with layer after layer of berry and spice flavors. Deliciously tempting now, it should drink best 2013 to 2023+." (WA)

"An essay in old vine grenache from a warmer climate. Sumptuous and earthy, concentrated and structured, it’s wild, heady and deeply layered, but also very approachable. Powerfully scented with heady aromas of dark flowers, game meats and five spice, with an underlying core of dark plums, cherries and berries backed by fiery nuances of baked earth, it’s long and deep, with a firmish, grainy palate of liqueur plums and blackberries finishing dry and savoury."
