A rather early maturing blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah that has a medium-high to high intensity nose of white pepper, spice, blackberry, complex oak spice, and stewed berry characters. It is medium-bodied and dry with some savoury and blackberry notes joining the aromas replays on the palate. It is structured with finely grained tannins and very good acidity. Shows finesse and elegance on the finish, with excellent length. Tasted Aug/2019.
