TASTING NOTE: This blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault is just gorgeous. It's savoury, with a wealth of complex and layered herbs, rhubarb, melon and red berry, with a spicy note on the long, caressing finish. It has an impressive weight and body and a relatively robust outlook. This would be great alongside a holiday turkey dinner with all the fixins. (Vintages panel, Sept. 2018) Price $ 16.95
