Jammy black and red fruits, baked earth, basil, and clove. Quite spicy on the palate. Moderate plus acidity. A blend of Mourvèdre, Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, and Cab Sauv.

Wound up and showing nothing but fruit. Nice #wine, dominated by light floral zin. Fruit for days, low tannin, acid and spice

Dark ruby color with exuberant violet, roast meat, dark fruit, tar and a hint of menthol aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, and well balanced with plum, cherry, black raspberry, and baking spice flavors. Long finish. 14.5% alcohol. Blend of 37% Grenache, 36% Syrah, and 27% Mourvedre

2013 vintage. Inviting aromas where red and blue berries intermingled with roasted spice, dry herbs, leather and naked stoneiness. Happy to feel the texture with any oak covers. Should complement a variety of dishes in the coming 6-8 years.
