The wine was sourced from vines with an average age of 80 years. It’s a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% Mourvèdre, although I’ve read it may also have some Carignan in it. The finished wine is 14.5% alcohol and sealed with cork.
“This medium to full-bodied effort has loads of chocolate covered cherries, candied violets, lavender, and earthy minerality in its medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy profile. It’s one delicious mouthful of fruit and will continue delivering the goods for another 4-6 years.'' 91 points, Jeb Dunnock, Vinous Media.
