Brilliant ruby. Spice-tinged blackberry, cherry pie and cured meat aromas display very good clarity and vivacity. Sweet, sharply focused dark berry flavors are complemented by an exotic floral character and gain a smoky quality with aeration. Finishes on a bright black raspberry note, with superb length and even tannins.

Wonderful aromas of dried berry, orange peel and hints of terracotta. Full body with bright, spicy fruit and lots of citrus on the finish. All about drinkability here. A blend of 82% grenache, 15% cinsault, 2% mataro and 1% syrah. Drink now.

"This is mostly grenache (82 percent), the balance cinsault, with a little mataro and syrah. It tastes like a low-intervention wine, spicy and lifted by some volatile notes, juicy with black olive and persimmon edges to the fruit. It’s tight and notably clean, sustained on a healthy balance of whatever microbes gave their lives to the greater deliciousness of this blend." Vine Street Imports, Mount Laurel, NJ

"Spicy and peppery, with a sarsaparilla note to the red cherry and plum flavors within, this is firm and juicy, lingering nicely on the finish, which offers sage details. Grenache, Syrah, Mataro and Cinsault. Drink now through 2026. 195 cases made." –MW
Fresh, vivid, spicy, bright and peppery. Lovely focused red cherry and berry fruit with a strongly savory edge. Distinctive stuff that really needs a day or two open to begin to wake up. Potentially long lived.
