2006 Le Mistral 
Wine Spectator – 92 points
Intense and full-blown, with spicy, beefy wild berry, red beet root, dried currant and a medley of dried herbs, gaining complexity and nuance. Ends with a dash of pepper and spice. Syrah, Grenache and Alicante Bouschet. Drink now through 2015. 4,000 cases made. –JL , March 31, 2009 Iss
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate - 89 points
“…a dark ruby color, not the breathtaking expansiveness and joy of the 2005, but of course it’s a year less evolved. It is well-made, medium to full-bodied, with peppery, earthy notes intermixed with some kirsch and blackberry. Drink it over the next 6-7 years.”
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - 89 points
"Bright red-ruby. Blackberry, black cherry and pepper on the cool but ripe nose. Supple and sweet but firm, with lively, fruit-driven flavors of dark berries, licorice and black pepper. Finished with broad tannins, lingering sweet fruit and hints of brushy herbs and spices. No shortage of complexity here.
