A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre that was raised mostly in concrete, this has a medium+ intensity, ripe, and fruity nose red cherry and blackberry, followed by sweet spices, kirsch, and incense with touches of floral. All of this comes through on the medium-full bodied palate with spice and mineral notes. It has supple, well-integrated tannins that have a slightly chalky texture. Long, juicy finish. Tasted Nov/2019.
