A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, this has all kinds of red berry aromas like ripe, dark red cherry, sappy, cherry liqueur, raspberry, stewed/baked red berry, eventually revealing floral and pepper spice notes. It is medium-full bodied on the palate with very good fruit concentration with more spice, red berry, cherry, and hints of peppery spice flavours. It is structured with chalky tannins, balanced acidity, while the finish length is excellent. Tasted Aug/2019.
