Heady but juicy Grenache dominates the blend of this wine, which also includes 30% Cinsault, 15% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre. Concentrated deep fruit aromas of plum, blackberry and muddled boysenberry flood the nose, while a streak of minerality and moderate acidity keep things vibrant in the medium-weight mouth with a velour-like texture. Licorice and sweet spice stay well into the close.
