After a sulfuric, gaseous opening, ripe aromas of blackberry and black cherry along with a hint of horsehide rise up. This is chunky, fruity and jammy in feel, with soft tannins. Pudgy flavors of boysenberry and herbal blackberry finish modest and short. This is one-third each Garnacha, Monastrell and Syrah.
