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.

88 - 90 pts Wine Advocate Cabernet Franc Estate

The 2012 Cabernet Franc Estate comes from estate vineyards and is made from 100% Cabernet Franc and aged 15 months in 50% new American oak.

Tasted out of barrel, it offers classic mint, eucalyptus, dark fruits and hints of minerality to go with a medium-bodied, supple, straightforward, yet nicely balanced profile on the palate. It should benefit from a year or two of bottle age, and drink well for 7-8 years, if not longer. Buy here!
