There’s a strongly stony streak on the nose of this blend of 40% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 21% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise and 3% Terret Noir, which also offers dried berry and purple-flower aromas. The palate is earthy and full of rocky flavors, yet also offers black-raspberry, red-plum and wild herb elements.
This has a very pretty, spicy nose with black pepper, brambleberry pie, dried thyme and sage, iodine, licorice and bark. Medium-bodied with bright acidity, tangy fruit and a fresh, medium-chewy finish. Drink now or hold.
