Pulled this out of the cellar and this wine is just hitting stride! The tannins and fresh fruit are now one. In fact, the first thing out of my mouth after the first sip was,”Oh, my God.” The Mourvèdre plays a slightly dominant role in the blend and adds fruity funk to the aromas and flavors.

Killer juice! Bright acidity and velvety tannins with bramble red and blue fruits dancing in my mouth. Precision.

Big tannins and big fruit. Dark cherry and chocolate.

Sadly, this suffered from cork taint. Hoped i could get past it but the fruit was so muted that I couldn't enjoy.
