Mourvèdre (40%) makes up the majority of this blend, followed by Grenache (37%), Syrah (19%) and Cinsault. It's locked up at present with brooding aromas of iron, cherry and dark berries that are followed by power-packed fruit flavors that show a pleasing sense of balance. It's bold but shows no shortage of detail.
