This is a well-balanced offering from Marqués de Griñon's. Forward but controlled cassis and blackberry aromas are earthy and suggest cocoa. A stout palate shows modest flexibility and elegance, while this blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot tastes of spicy cassis and raisin prior to finishing rock steady. Drink through 2024.
