Medium ruby with watery legs. The nose has medium (+) intensity aromas of blackberry, raspberry, red plum, violet, black pepper, charred wood, cedar and is meaty. It is quite complex and developing. The palate is dry with medium acidity, medium tannins, high alcohol, medium body and medium (+) intensity flavors of raspberry, red plum, coffee, black pepper, cedar and that meaty note. There is nice complexity to this wine that has a medium (-) finish. Overall I really like this blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre that is drinking well now but has potential for aging. 91 points for this $22 bottle make it a 5 star effort. Drink till 2028. Salut….
