90 pts Wine Advocate - 2011 The Coquette

The 2011 The Coquette is 100% Cinsault that spent 18 months in neutral French oak barrels. Semi-transparent in color, with a Pinot Noir-like bouquet of sweet kirsch and cherry fruit, loads of exotic spice, dried flowers and dried underbrush, it flows onto the palate with a medium-bodied, supple and sweetly fruited profile that shows juicy acidity on the finish. It should drink nicely for at least 3-5 years.
