Blend of old Grenache, Syrah & Mourvèdre has a lovely, intense nose of spices, black pepper5 & dark berries with meaty, licorice, black cherry & smoky mineral, plus hints of violets adding further complexity. On the structured, medium-full bodied palate it is very ripe with black & blueberry, smoky mineral, black pepper spice, black raspberry, and licorice flavours supported by ripe, fine-grained tannins and juicy, well-balanced acidity. Slightly chalky on the mid-palate and beautifully balanced throughout with lovely flavour replays lingering on the long, smoky mineral finish. Tasted Jan/2022.
