Excellent tasting with Chris!

Mix of ruby and garnet red. Elegant nose with cinnamon, purple flowers, roses and darker berries. Strong acidity and warm mouthfeel. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Darker on the palate than the nose with notes of blackcurrants, cassis, and nutmeg. Medium plus finish. Made of 100% Grenache. Fruit comes from 9 coastal vineyards. Drink from 2018 till 2024.

Dark, rich, blackberry jam, sweet oak. Complex, but hot and sweet. Ripe and clumsy wine.

Better on day two. Decanted for a couple of hours prior to consuming. Over the top.
