Brilliant ruby red. Highly polished, intensely ripe, fruity nose of cherry, tobacco leaf and laurel that develops grilled notes, dark chocolate, and forest floor as it evolves. Very supple attack in the mouth with superbly elegant, fine-grained tannins. The palate has more structure than the 2018 vintage, but remains beautifully fresh and taut, with notes of wild aniseed, golden tobacco and truffle that linger on the finish. A truly great Grenache of distinctly Mediterranean style that will delight all who love this grape and this exceptional terroir.
