Dominated by grenache, this wine has an intense purple colour with a nose expressing loads of ripe red fruit aromas, such as sweet black cherry. The palate is a continuation of the aromatic complexity: spices and black fruit are balanced by soft tannins. The finish is long with aromatic hints of liquorice and pepper.
"Brandy-soaked black cherries and crushes of basalt introduce this intensely fruity but peppery, salt-rimmed red. A blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, it's concentrated but maintains a mineral freshness and lovely violet perfume. Edged with soft, silky tannins, the wine is approachable young but should drink at peak through 2030 at least." 95 points (2019 vintage), Wine Enthusiast
