Review:
Whiffs of bramble and wild mint lend complexity to ripe black cherry and blackberry on the palate of this Grenache-dominant blend. It's a rich, penetrating wine, with a silky, supple mouthfeel contrasted by fine, densely packed tannins. Elegant and balanced, it's appealing already but likely will better in 2021 and should gain depth and complexity well through 2030.
