Made from three parcels of vines, this blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon is deeply colored and structured. Dark tannins show alongside the smooth and polished texture from new-wood aging. With the structure come rich black currant and dark plum fruits and acidity. The wine will be best aged until 2017.
