This is a brooding blend of Cinsault, Carignan, Grenache, and Syrah – aged on French oak. Dusky vegetal aromas lead into an intriguing palate of spiced fruit with strong herbal influences – it’s quirky and may be an acquired taste to some but when that peppery finish comes home over the preceding “unusual” flavors – it’s a whopping success
