Grenache, Mourvedre and Shiraz are vinified separately, followed by maturation in older French oak hogheads for ten months prior to assemblage and bottling.
Deep garnet with violet hues. Exotic spicy plum and cherry aromas with complex notes of lavender, cardamom, sage and mace contribing enticing complexity. A ripe, fleshy palate packed with dark fruits, spices and herbs, textured and layered, velvety fine tannins and a long finish. A match to braised cheek, Pot au feu or red wine ragu.
