This is a blend of 65% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah. Purple in color. The nose has black cherries, black raspberries and plums along with some spice and earthy funk. On the palate, this is complex. Layers of black cherries and black raspberries with damp earthiness. Good acidity. Long finish. This is drinking very well right now. It should be at this level for another five to ten years. It goes well with roasts and casseroles.
