A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 10% Cinsault. Deep dark red colour with a dark red hue. Pronounced ripe black raspberry and liquorice aromas mix with black cherries, scorched earth and peppered herb notes. Lush black cherry and liquorice fruits are delivered with terrific richness, backed by a ripe chewy tannin structure. Lingering in the background are scorched earth, peppered dried herb and subtle leather characters. Grippy mouthfeel. Excellent depth with a robust yet generously endowed conclusion.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
A pretty complex nose of cherries, berries, dried herbs, cola and baking spices. It’s medium-bodied with finely grained tannins. Round and juicy with a bright core of cherries and some chocolate undertones towards the finish. Balanced and delicious with a vivid finish. Drink or hold.
