A blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mataro and 10% Shiraz. Semi translucent dark red colour with black shaded edges and a light red hue. Fragrant dark raspberry, spicy plum and red liquorice scents are trailed by delicate earth, confectionary and pepper notes. Succulent red to dark raspberry, red plum and liquorice fruits flood the mouth underscored by spicy vanillin cedar, faint earth and dried herb characters. Outstanding power and concentration with velvety tannins, nicely balanced acidity and a long juicy aftertaste. Highly addictive stuff.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
