The 2013 Locus Red got a 91 point rating from Wine Spectator in its most recent issue (dated March 31, 2016). The ratings, which can also be found online at winespectator.com, calls the wine “Bright and tangy, with a certain density to the lively raspberry, rhubarb and plum flavors as they dance with refined tannins on the finish. Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2021. 123 cases made.- HS”
The 2013 Locus Red ($25/bottle) was not the only wine that got favorable consideration from the respected wine portal. The 2012 Locus Syrah and the recently released (and flying off the shelves) 2014 Locus Modo Red also got nods.
