Ink dark in color with a black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays black berries to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some soft tannins and acidity. This is an ok wine, but nothing spectacular. I can see the description as being smooth. It could be quite well suited to poultry and salmon. I would give it an -88. I won’t be rushing out for more. The wine is a southern-France blend of 50-per-cent syrah, 30-per-cent grenache and 20-per-cent mourvèdre.
