Grapes: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre

Tasting Notes

Deep red colour with purple reflection, with more time this colour will tend to red garnet. First aromas are vanilla, roasted coffee and cocoa. After swirling, these aromas can evolved to matured red and black fruits. Palate start with a delicate mousse, tannins are melted, aromas tend to be more on matured fruits such as blackcurrant and blackberry. Good evolution in mouth with a peppery and spicy finish. Tannins are very long and reveal a good potential for ageing.
