Juicy raspberry and cranberry and a hint of peppercorn. Zippy acidity, light and easy drinking.

Simply tasty. So juicy. Well-balanced. Nice kiss of tannin on the finish

A blend of Cinsault (35%), Grenache (35%),Syrah (15%) and Tempranillo (15%). Beqaa Valley, altitude 900-1200 m. Easy-going simple spicy wine, best when a bit chilled.

Nose of a Rhône blend with something else in there I can’t place. Med to fairly light body, good fruit, some gritty tannins. 14.5 but doesn’t taste like it.
