This is 100% Grenache from vines that are over 100 years old. Incredible wine with only 400 Magnums being released. Purple in color, slight ruby line at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose is great with cassis, slight raspberries, minerals, slight anise and floral notes. Full bodied. Incredible texture. Its a big wine but with so much energy and so light on its feet. On the palate, this is complex and concentrated. As it unwinds on the palate, there are black raspberries, lots of minerality, some anise and spice. Long finish. Delicious. This is drinking quite well now but just starting to show some age. Drink over the next fifteen to twenty years. Served with Butternut Squash Tortellini, it was fantastic.
