To me, it’s the Grenache that really comes through in this gsm blend. Very accessible, rich red fruit and earthy core. In a good place right now.

Tight, dark fruited nose. Big chunky and granular tannins. Sweet black fruit on finish

Absolutely delicious blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah :) could even be kept for another couple of years. I look forward to trying other wines from this vineyard

Reminds me of some of the Booker wines. Solid wine with a bit of a tangy finish. May mellow with air and time.

Very fruit-forward and full bodied with some decent tannins - overall a nice, juicy wine that is very easy drinking and full of flavor.
