Grape Varieties : Mainly Grenache and Syrah.
Notes of roasted plum and blackberry preserves are shaded by wisps of smoke, black pepper and clove in this full-bodied, grounded red blend. Tasted at the start of 2021, it has delicate hints of cured meat and forest floor that suggest maturity. This softly tannic, velveteen sip should pair well with wild game. Drink now–2025. Anna Lee C.

The vines enjoy a Mediterranean climate and are planted on clay-limestone, clay and glacial-fluvial soils.
