65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre. Medium intensity aromas of blueberry, blackberry, lavender, black pepper, black tea, cinnamon, leather, potting soil. The tannins are not too drying but produce enough grip for a long warming finish of slightly bitter coffee and cinnamon. This wine is juicy, mouth watering, warming and spicy. Complex and fun to drink. Acidity and alcohol nicely integrated without being dominant. Great wine.
