This brambly red blend has blackberries and dark plums, in essence-like, concentrated style and is super fresh for the age. The palate delivers some serious, firmish tannin with a bold, red-plum and herb-infused finish. A blend of 49% carignan, 22% malbec, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 14% syrah. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
From the Winemakers' Website: "Concentrated deep violet in colour. The nose is attractive and intense with a range of aromas from the different varieties in the blend, including dry fruit aromas such as hazelnuts, dates and dried figs, floral notes of jasmine and roses and, finally, hints of chocolate. The palate is sophisticated and intense. Juicy with the presence of chocolate, coffee and tobacco leaves. The finish is long with ripe and velvety tannins. An unforgettable experience:.
Food Matching: Peppery catalan sausage (salchichon), spicy lamb meatballs, aubergine parmigiana (melanzane alla parmigiana)
