This blend of Carignan, Garnacha, Monastrell and several other local grapes opens with gritty, cheesy aromas of oak, tar and asphalt along with savory berry fruits. A saturated, dense palate weighs in as heavy and thick, tasting of reedy berry fruits, roasted plum, savory spices and grilled steak. A blackened, oaky finish is a touch syrupy in feel but quite deep and long. Drink through 2023.
