This is a selection of really good old vines Mourvèdre and Syrah. The Mourvèdre was aged in barrels for one year. This is a hearty wine with lots of spice and elegance. It unites plum and berry preserves with a raw meat charcater for an unforgettable juxtaposition. there are hints of herbs, cocoa powder and vanilla. For those of you who enjoy deeply flavored reds, which are wrapped in a lush texture...run, don't walk to buy this wine. Not much was made.

Wine AdvocateAn equal-part blend of Mourvedre and Syrah, the 2011 Les Enfants Terribles possesses supple tannins, good density, some wood spice intermixed with red and black fruits and slightly tart acids that give the tannins a little grip/bite to them. This wine should drink well for 2-3 years.
