A sweet, raisiny old-vines Garnacha with candied aromas and a fat, chunky body that houses soft, short black fruit and peppery flavors. Tastes like licorice candy on the finish, which brings some heat and burn as well. An interesting Grenache that is sweet but isn't over the top in terms of ripeness.
