Fresh raspberry, rose water, and green banana, attributable to whole cluster fermentation. Mourvèdre, Tempranillo, and Grenache equal parts. Spices, herbs, and slight earthy notes.

Really beautiful. Held up and evolved beautifully over 4 days. Red fruit and spice with a nice earthy base. Drinking pretty well now but will probably benefit from some aging.

My second rodeo with Mr. St John, glad I am here: a deeper dive into black fruits than his Cote Du Rhône homage, & a more generous palate. Still all in balance, a restrained hand, but the terroir speaks through his hand, amen. Grenache, some Tempranillo, some Mourvedre, and some Graciano. Decanted about 1/2 hr. Delectable allows me to name only my local tag sale but not my town? Whaadup @Delectable Wine ?
