92 POINTS, Jeb Dunnuck. "The 2015 Christo is a blend of 64% Syrah, 23% Grenache, 7% Petite Sirah, and 6% Viognier. Beautiful blackberry fruit, peppery herbs, underbrush, and a hint of olive all give way to a medium to full-bodied, plump, textured beauty that shines for its charm, texture, and pleasure-bent style."
Northern Rhone look alike. Absolutely gorgeous bright, briary, savory herb, rosemary, and incredible depth that remains weightless throughout to the pure finish.
