Predominantly old vine Grenache, with smaller parts Syrah and Mourvedre the wine is perfumed with kirsch, blackberry, pepper and herbs. There's a silky, luscious texture, big structure and some serious length.
A blockbuster of a wine, coming from the top quality old vines on the estate. Special drinking now but will age for decades.
