Vinous: 92 points

The 2012 No. 1 is rich, exuberant and beautifully layered in the glass, with plenty of dark cherry compote, herbs, smoke, licorice. Silky, polished tannins add to the wine's sensual feel, while a dollop of whole clusters gives the wine striking aromatic lift to balance the opulence of the fruit. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off the 2012, as it is incredibly inviting. There is just a touch of heat on the finish. Otherwise, this is a very strong 2012. The blend is 93% Syrah, 5% Viognier and 2% Mourvèdre, done with 30% whole clusters. The 2012 spent 25 months in French oak, 58% new.
