The lifted red fruits expected from Grenache are met with darker fruit characters and lovely spice, the true depth is revealed with layers of gravelly earth, iron and graphite along with liquorice and anise. There is also a pretty nuance of fresh roses and dried petals adding an elegant touch. The palate has immediate impact with pungent, rich dark fruits and earth. The dark plum and mulberry fruit make way for rich, gritty and vibrant fruit tannins which build nicely before slowly fading to reveal oodles of spice and dark earthy fruits. There is considerable structure, restrained power, focus and great depth focus on the finish.
