Wine Advocate Review: 91 points
"There are approximately 12,000 cases of the NV Christo Lot 3, which is a hedonistic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Petite Sirah and a touch of Viognier to uplift the aromatics. This is, again, aged in neutral oak for two years and a blend of three vintages: 2011, 2012 and 2013. This is my favorite of all of these wines a wine of exceptional purity and intensity and plenty of character, as this one is 70% Syrah and the rest the other three grapes. It tips the scales at a lofty 15.3% alcohol, but it’s well hidden behind a cascade of blackberry and cassis fruit, roasted meats, steak tartare, licorice and Provençal herbs. It’s a big boy, and that’s exactly the way they want it. This wine should drink well for 7-8 years, but it’s meant to be consumed in its exuberant youthfulness."

From the Winery:
"Christo isn’t getting any thinner. Now on Lot 3, this wine is a powerhouse: dense,
rich, and long. The nose continues to balance deep berry, savory herb and mineral earth characters. A gorgeous rhone-style blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Viognier, it is extremely easy to drink and it has layers of flavor that last longer than the bottle."
