David (89): This is a very friendly, quite soft but not too sweet or jammy blend with the ripe strawberry-cherry jam fruit of grenache leading off. There are lovely floral notes (peony) with well integrated pepper and spice as well. It's medium-full bodied, quite soft and a touch hot (altho only 13.5% alcohol). It stays nicely focused, ending with sweet fruit, tobacco and gentle earthiness. Very good to excellent length. Despite being named the strapper it has some delicacy. Tasted April 2015
