The 2012 blend is comprised of 40% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 30% Mourvèdre. In comparison to the 2011 this release is slightly less savory, lighter, brighter and more vibrant, which will not come as a surprise to those who enjoyed the 3 individual wines. Color is a light brick red. On the nose one smells fresh aromas of pomengranite, black tea, white pepper, red cherry and spice. On the palate the wine is subtle, bright, fresh: layered with bright red fruits, a mid palate that covers the tongue with spice and darker red fruits, and a lingering finish, with just a touch of tannin for balance, with a hint of salinity that will continue to develop with bottle aging. Suggested to drink from a Burgundy glass, and please, at proper temparature of 56-58 degrees.
