Aromas of mulberries and strawberries, with intense mineral notes and hints of toast and spices. This blend of Grenache, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Hairy Grenache and Syrah is surprisingly deep.

Can't believe who good this is at this price. The best that the Mediterranean has to offer: fruit, herbs, some spices, delicious mouthfeel.
