"90 Points Wine Enthusiast. The wine is rich, full in the mouth and delicious. With its creamy texture, baked apple flavors and sprinkling of spice, it's a dense and ripe wine that could be drunk now, but which will be better in 2016."
"Deep purple, almost opaque in colour with an expressive nose of black fruits, pepper, cinnamon, spice and violets. A seductive palate of dark hedgerow fruits, very open and welcoming with an explosion of fruit and spice. Mineral undertones."
"Pale yellow color. Fruity and fresh nose, with smoked flavors. Round and soft, well balanced, with a nice freshness . Fresh bread and smoked aromas. A nice dry Pinot Blanc with an enjoyable fruit. Easy drinking crispy wine."
"90 WE Very dry, dark, boasting extreme tannins along with solid, chunky fruit. The wine has acidity, black plum skins and licorice to go with this dense structure. A powerful wine"
"Esprit de Flore is a well-balanced wine with a lovely roundness. Red fruits dance from the glass and the tannins are lithe. The finish reveals cranberries, strawberries and the slightest hint of liquorice. Esprit de Flore is easy to drink, and ready to drink now."
"Opaque, perfumed with fragrant black cherry, cassis and spice. Full bodied, intense with countless layers of flavour including blackcurrant, cedar and graphite. Dense fruit on the palate is bound by a structure of fine grained tannins and a lively acidity. This wine shows great depth and character and yet is refined with a long, elegant finish."
"Bright, attractive raspberry pink color. A blend of Cinsault and Syrah, resulting in a very fresh, expressive red fruit fragrance of strawberry, raspberry and red currant with floral overtones. Delightful tangy acidity, smooth texture, excellent length and balance. Truly an amazing ros?."
"Rose de saignee. The Syrah has 6-8 hours of skin contact, and the Grenache has 12-16 hours. Night harvesting is done to preserve freshness. Raspberry in color, with a ripe cherry, underbrush and mineral nose. Shows tangy cherry and blood orange notes, with hints of spice."
