With a strong herbal tone to the red fruit, the wine is round, lush and fruity. The tannins are ripe, the wine is rich, but the garrigue and green olive tone is quite strong this year.

Medium bodied, forward, soft and approachable, the wine is on the sweet, refined cherry side of the style range, with a hit of spice in the soft, kirsch oriented finish. This should be easy to like on release. The wine was produced from blending 80% Grenache with 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre.

Medium-bodied, the smoke, oak, earth, herbs, truffle and deep red fruits are the first thing you notice. The wine is fresh, elegant, lifted, vibrant and spicy with sweet, juicy cherries in the finish. This should drink well with just a few years of aging.
