($65; 70% grenache, 25% shiraz and 5% mourvedre) Ruby-red. Smoky cherry and dark berry aromas are expansive and pure, with fresh violet, cured meat and sassafras adding complexity. The red fruit flavors display good energy and thrust thanks to bright minerality, and are braced by youthfully firm tannins. The silky finish offers a good jolt of tangy redcurrant.
