Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Department 66 Others 2018

Ruby red in coloring with a distinguished brick rim, this wine offers alluring notes of marion berries, blue fruits, compote, garriuge, and a touch of dried lavender.
Rich, concentrated dark fruits are immediately noticeable upon entry which transition effortlessly to a piquant mid palate of plum tart, dried spices, and mountain herbs.

Persistent acidity juxtaposes the generous core and finishes with a lengthy coda.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Rated 92:
Not far behind its big brother, the 2015 Côtes Catalanes Others checks in as a blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah and the balance Carignan, Mourvèdre and Lladoner. Currants, black raspberries, spices and chocolate all emerge from this rich, supple, beautifully textured effort that has classic Maury flair. Brought up in 30% new barrels, drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years.

Wine & Spirits - Rated 92:
As bold as you would expect from a wine by Dave Phinney, the Californian who launched The Prisoner, this is a huge red, lush with superripe berry flavors. A blend of grenache, carignan, mourvèdre and syrah, it succeeds in the style by backing that fruit with firm, nutty tannins to balance the sweetness. It ends cleanly, lasting on fragrance, a sumptuous red for thickcut steaks.
