50/50 blend of Syrah and Grenache. Wood and plum aromas from the cork. Medium+ aromatics from the glass with notes of blackberry, black cherry, kirsch liquer, and sweet oak spices. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with black plum, sweet baking spice and some herbal, sage nuances. It has very good acids and fine tannins. Finishes long with slight chalky mouthfeel. Very good value! Tasted July/2015.

This wine presents very good value - a long as you like the drier, slightly earthy finish. The aroma is full of blackberries, blueberries and plums which go well with the juicy mouth feel. The finish can be a bit dry, which may turn some people off.
