Product description

Parabellum is Force Majeure's second label that uses estate fruit to create approachable wines ready to enjoy now. Parabellum is an entry-level wine that way over-delivers. Blackcurrants, graphite, lots of minerality, chocolate and just a touch of floral notes all flow to a rich, medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and balanced Rhone blend.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    Checking in as a blend of 61% Syrah and 39% Mourvedre, the 2014 Rhone Parabellum sports a vibrant purple, semi-opaque color to go with fabulous notes of black raspberries, cassis, cedary spice and hints of pepper. This is a rich, elegant, incredibly polished red that has terrific purity, ripe, sweet tannin, a graceful personality and a great finish. It's an entry-level wine that surpasses most estates' top cuvees. 

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast    This wine is 61% Syrah and 39% Mourvèdre. Appealing aromas of red and black fruit, mineral, spice, earth and braised meat lead to a full bodied, still quite tightly wound palate. All the stuffing is there but it needs some additional time in bottle or a short decant to open up.
