Dry and grippy, as a colleague called it, on the palate—in other words, these tannins just aren't going anywhere. Fruit here is tight, taut stuff: like the skin of black plums and purply berries, quite like what you get on the nose. This wine will keep you on your blind-tasting toes, and will even hold up in the cellar. A blend of 60% Mourvèdre, 21% Grenache and 19% Shiraz. Imported by Negociants USA, Inc.
