TASTING NOTES (May 2010)
Colour: Very dark garnet red, with hints of violet.
Nose: Excellent aromatic intensity dominated by red fruit and spices. Woody notes are subtle but definitely present.
In the mouth: The light attack confirms the wine's youth. The wine quickly becomes full-bodied, developing on the palate with notes of dark fruit and spices. The immense richness of the Mourvèdre combines with the balance of the Syrah and Grenache to define a very elegant tannic structure. Mellow notes from the maturing process mingle harmoniously in the long, persistent finish.
