James Suckling Review
Very impressive wine with sturdy tannins and plenty of upbeat, dark, punchy fruit on offer. The palate has a very plush, silky edge with ripe, red-plum and blackberry flavors, cast amid assertive, bold but silky tannins. Drink or hold.
Complex, open nose with aromas of blackberry fruit, floral notes of violets, and fresh moss, accented by hints of new leather, ginger and allspice. Rich and harmonious, showing superb maturity. Ripeness and power on the palate. The clean, intense front presents beautiful red fruit and spice, with a touch of minerality. The silky tannin structure provides a long finish of exotic fruit flavors.
Grape Varietals: Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah & Mourvedre.
