Tasting Notes:
Extremely successful with the Grenache fruit naturally dominating the wine but with the Syrah still apparent. The subtle use of oak is there too but doesn't make its presence felt too strongly.

Critic Reviews:
"Black cherries and plums appear alongside hints of cedar and leather on the nose of the NV Cairanne Arcane La Temperance. It's full-bodied (labeled at 15% alcohol), yet not overly heavy, with silky tannins, peppery notes and even some brighter, raspberry-like nuances on the lingering finish. Given its structure and concentration, it should drink well for at least 4-5 years." 92/100 (Wine Advocate)

"Although this is a self-confidently rich and fleshy Cairanne, it also has a very well-crafted structure, the gentle tannins keeping the 15% alcohol on track. I love the dark, earthy finish that pulls you back to the glass for more. Drink or hold." 93/100 (James Suckling)
