Medium Ruby with a pronounced bouquet of crushed strawberry and raspberry, black cherry, garrigue, leather, violet, thyme and lavender. Well balanced acidity and tannin even at this early stage and an exceptional finish. A wonderful wine with years ahead but already great. 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% “sundry others.” 14.5% abv

Complex fruit aromas, very. Ice acid balance and long finish. Explosion of fruit on the palate, spices and balanced oak structure. Very good.
