54% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 13% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, 5% Graciano, 2% Carignan, 1% Roussanne

Bright and sappy aromas of blackberry, rose petal, and soy intermingle to create a complex, yet pure introduction to this classic blend. The palate powers along with fresh strawberry, Szechuan peppercorn, cocoa and orange zest that evolve into chewy, refined tannins that finish with a lively lift.
