Our Review

This wine is a blend of Syrah (40%), Grenache (27%) and Mourvèdre. The aromas bring a sense of purity, along with notes of herb, barrel spice and cherry. The palate brings a sense of candied fruit flavors, with the tannins still quite tightly wound. It doesn't all come together but it will provide interesting conversation for those who enjoy a bit of restraint.
