Garrigue, savory red fruits, and spice come alive with little effort. Here, you find a medium-bodied, elegant, soft, fruit-filled, expression of Grenache. There is a lushness to the fruits that feels just great on your palate. This is already so easy to drink, I snuck in a taste or two, writing this note. The Mourvedre in the blend adds a lot to the wine. Drink from 2023 - 2035

My first time with this wine and I really like. From mostly old vine Grenache, with a touch of Mourvedre, the wine is lush, fat and juicy with layers of sweet, ripe black cherries, kirsch, spice and licorice. The wine has the ability to age, but the fruit and tannins are so ripe and tasty, if you cannot keep your hands off a bottle, I understand.
