Wine EnthusiastWhispers of dried thyme, rosemary and wild mint extend from nose to finish in this supple, silken blend of Grenache and Syrah. It's a penetrating wine full of succulent black cherry flavor but keenly balanced, too. The finish is marked by rambling minerality and very fine, soft tannins. Pleasurable already but will improve through 2030.
Wine SpectatorRipe but restrained, with smooth waves of plum sauce, blackberry preserves and warm fig moving through, infused with light anise, black tea and alder notes. The fine-grained finish has sneaky length. Drink now through 2024.
