TASTING NOTE: A blend of Grenache and Syrah, generally in about a 4:1 ratio, the 2020 IGP Cotes Catalanes Narassa features appealing, complex aromas of violets and plummy fruit, reminiscent of blackberries and blueberries. Picked as two separate harvests - one in September and one in November - and then blended, this is full-bodied, richly concentrated and fleshy, with a velvety finish that shows a touch of warmth. It's winter-weight wine, for sure. Drink date: [Now]-2028. Score - 91 (Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com, March 31, 2023) Price $ 24.95
