      2012 crozes hermitage (rouge) DOMAINE DES LISES
      The Wine Advocate (2014): 88

      Already in bottle (under screw cap), the 2013 Crozes Hermitage Equinoxe is a deliciously quaffable, forward, delicious effort that gives up juicy berry fruit, underbrush and peppery notes. It’s very well made, has solid Northern Rhone typicity, and should drink nicely for a handful of years. Drink 2014 - 2017

      2012 cornas EQUIS
      The Wine Advocate (2014): 93

      The star of the show is the 2012 Cornas Equis. Inky colored, with tons of crushed rock, graphite, cassis, black raspberry, licorice and smoked meats, it’s medium to full-bodied, ripe, textured and balanced. Seeing 20 months in 50% new French oak, this is serious stuff well worth seeking out.

      2012 saint joseph (rouge) EQUIS
      The Wine Advocate (2014): 89

      Borderline outstanding, the 2012 Saint Joseph Equis is another well-made, classic wine from this estate. Giving up plenty of granite-driven minerality, raspberry, pepper and underbrush, it’s medium-bodied, fresh, lively and mid-weight, with fine tannin and excellent purity. It will drink well through 2022. Drink 2014 - 2022

      2011 crozes hermitage (rouge) EQUINOXE
      The Wine Advocate (2012): 88

      This sexy, fruit-dominated Crozes-Hermitage, Syrah fruit bomb comes from the son of Alain Graillot, Maxime. The wine is bottled early to take advantage of its delicious, straightforward fruit. There is no doubting its sexiness, medium-bodied richness or pure berry fruit notes intermixed with herb, licorice and incense characteristics. This delightful red can be served slightly chilled over the next several years.
