This is divided relatively evenly among the components—40% Grenache, 31% Syrah and 29% Mourvèdre. A pretty plum shade, it's still showing youthful tart acidic flavors. Cranberry, strawberry, raspberry and a touch of apple are all here, with more of that tart astringency as it concludes. This should continue to improve through 2021.
