Tasting notes: This Grenache has a beautiful garnet colour, deep and rich, with pretty violet tints. The bouquet is complex and intense with a hint of plum, fig, blackcurrant and raspberry, blended with subtle hints of vanilla and grilled almond. This is a smooth wine, well-rounded, with lots of freshness and fruit, including cherry, and liquorices. The finish is rich and long-lasting.
