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.

35% Mourvèdre, 27% Grenache, 19% Carignan, 16% Syrah, 3% Cab. Great complex blend, terrific fruit and strong finish. I love Mourvèdre and this wine!

Anise, black cherry, floral hint. Medium tannins, medium acid. Becomes more monolithic and grapey with air. Nothing special. Lacks freshness. 13 vintage.
