This blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignane shares several characteristics with the 2013 Spe’y. It is a deep colored wine that has an aromatic profile bursting with blueberries, violets, truffle oil, cinnamon, and traces of coffee and perfume. The palate is medium bodied; yet balanced with a spicy complexity and hints of candied blueberries and rose petals. The beautifully rich mid palate is poised with a bright acidity and elongated with multidimensional round tannins to linger on your tongue.
