Packaged in an oversized bottle, the wine delivers smoke, flowers, black raspberries, cherries, herbs, and greenery in the perfume. On the palate, the wine is rich, lush polished, and intense. The fruits are ripe, plush, and polished, long, fresh, and dark, with an oaky edge, so this is going to need a bit of time before it shows its best as the oak needs to fully integrate. The wine blends 50% Grenache with 50% Syrah. Drink from 2025-2036.
