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 93 Points
