The Cuvee Prestige is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre, and with one look you’ll fall in love. The color is a beautiful garnet that has a slightly orange robe. The nose begins with an enticing liqueur like quality, with aromas of cassis, blackberry, raspberry and whispers of red flowers. This wine is incredibly fruity and concentrated yet maintains flavor definition and verve from the beginning to end. The flavors are an integration of black fruits, violets, tar spice and licorice. This wine is dense, broad and complete. It is a big boy but not unwieldy with alcohol or overly oaky. It finishes with broad, noble tannins and great persistence. This wine exemplifies everything that is great about this classic vintage, and will continue to show off for another decade.
