The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2003 Revelation (61% Syrah, 35% Grenache, and 4% Petite Sirah) reveals scents of smoke, jammy berries, vanilla, and spice box. Full-bodied, opulent, fleshy, and heady, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 5-6 years. Score: 90. —Robert Parker, August 2006.

Big, thick, soft, gooey, delicious, a little hot, that begins to describe this Rhône blend, which is Syrah, Grenache and a dash of Petite Sirah. It’s all essence of cherries, melted chocolate, coffee, vanilla, cinnamon. Score: 89. —Steve Heimoff, December 15, 2006.
