Grenache and syrah. Dark, ripe, spicy flavours, earth, truffle, black pepper, in other words, better than average...

Jammy black fruit, meaty and toasty in the nose. Firm black fruits, pepper and cherries in the flavour and on the finish.

It takes some time to open in the glass, but with an hour of air, this blend of Syrah and mostly Garnacha displays aromas of dark fruit, cinnamon stick and a hint of graphite. It mellows across the palate showing a lovely dark cocoa powder dryness initially followed by a juicy dark cherry freshness. Decant before serving to breath. Tasted alongside pork tenderloin and then again with a chocolate dessert - It works both ways. March 2012.
