A beautiful and richly balanced aroma of dark fruits and wood tones, highly appealing; almost perfect balance on the palate and in the mouthfeel; a little too crisp for the garnering of a higher score in the classic range; the finish is long and lasting, coating the mouth with no indication of unripe tannins or bitterness; full and satisfying — right from the start, you can see this is a wine that is rating over 90 and is in the outstanding range of scores.
There’s a blend of grapes here: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. What gives this wine an added appeal is the harmonious blend of its grapes. Not all winemakers can blend and make a synchronous marriage of grape varieties that have their own characteristics, which want to express themselves and be somehow noticed but yield to each other in this way. Yes, you could guess the grapes used in this wine, but individuality has been obscured as much as possible to provide a unity, and this wine has succeeded.
There are notes of black tea, raspberry and loads of blackberry to keep it mellow, and hints of dried strawberry. From the world of oak come dark chocolate, clove and a background of leather (faint but present). It is a GSM on which to model your taste and idea of this classic blend. Keep it a few years, as it is still young with promise.
Emotional rating: the pleasures of harmony are outstanding and it is highly pleasing
