This is a blend of 50% Syrah, 34% Grenache, 16% Mourvedre checking in at 15.7% ABV. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, plums, black pepper, slight roasted herbs and meats and a bit of violets. Full bodied. Great lush texture but with lively acidity. So easy to drink with no noticeable alcohol on the nose or palate. Black raspberries over roasted earth with some herbs. Long finish. This is young but accessible. It should continue to improve over the next three to seven years and drink well for another ten to fifteen after that. It drinks well on its own and worked very well with chocolate cake. It would also work with roasted or grilled meats.
