"Another killer 2013 is the 2013 Cotes du Ventoux Cuvee Persia, which comes mostly from very old vine Syrah mixed with 10% Mourvedre. Aged 18 months in a combination of foudres and barrels, it offers fabulous purity in its ripe plum and black raspberry fruits, crushed flower and violet aromas and flavors. Elegant, layered and with silky tannin, this is the Hermitage of the south and it will drink beautifully for at least 5-6 years."

"Saturated ruby. Aromas of spice-tinged black and blue fruits display a suave floral quality. Chewy and focused on entry and then fleshier in the middle, offering juicy boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors that spread out nicely on the back half. Rich yet lively, delivering strong finishing punch, dusty tannins and a late suggestion of olive paste."
