Our Review

This is a blend of 39% Syrah, 31% Grenache, 29% Mourvèdre, 18% Cinsaut and 5% Cinsault, with a splash of Petite Sirah. It offers small amounts of Cinsault, Grenache, Viognier and Syrah, with a bit of Grenache on the nose. The palate offers a touch of fudgy earthiness and some green olive and smoke.
