Another of the Syrconnection wines, this opens with a dark berry, earth and woody bouquet. Full and structured in the mouth, it shows the high acidity, dark berry and herb flavors, and vaguely metallic (some say herb) notes Grenache can show. Finishes somewhat astringently, with fairly hard tannins. Rustically solid, if somewhat rough now. A good value cellar candidate; hold and try after 2004.
