A blend of 78% Syrah, 20% Grenache, and 2% Mourvèdre that has a fresh, medium-high to highly aromatic nose of mineral followed by fruity blackberry, dark berry, and herbal notions. It is full-ish bodied on the palate with more dark berry and mineral notes joined by touches of smoke, spice, and peppery herbs. It has supple, integrated tannins and very good acidity, while the finish is long with curranty notes. Tasted Aug/2019.
