Blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah. Light aromas of plum and red berry from the cork. Medium+ intensity nose is very savoury earthy in nature, followed by garrigue, wild herbs, black pepper, and blackberry with hints of florality. It's medium-bodied with nice peppery and garrigue aroma replays that are lifted by fresh acidity. Supple tannins are well-integrated and the finish is long and earthy. Tasted Aug/2017.

First nose was as described. Later nose was non-descript. Quite acidic and perhaps too herbal for us. Hopeful that this would be caseable but alas it was not.
