92 pts.Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: October, 2013
Fashioned from an interesting blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged three months in French oak, the opaque purple-colored 2011 Pur displays notes of salty sea breezes, wet rocks, intense blueberry and black raspberry fruit, and hints of roasted meats and bouquet garni. This superb effort comes from relatively young vines planted just above sea level. It should drink well for 4–5 years.

Inky purple. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of dark berries and cola, with a hint of cracked pepper adding vibrancy. Offers pliant black and blue fruit flavors and supple texture, with a sexy floral quality in the background. Finishes smooth, fruity and long, with soft tannins and a touch of candied violet.
