The nose is fairly intense with slightly spicy, bright, ripe, plummy-crancherry fruit with some faintly cedary, mineral notes.

Has 14.5% alcohol and 5 g/L residual sugar with NEW lot number L-C21145 on the back label. This crowd-pleasing blend of 80% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon spent 12 months in new French and American oak before going back into stainless steel for bottling. CSPC 13621

TASTING NOTE: This red is sleek and solid, in the modern style. Bright cherry, berry and currant flavors mingle with licorice, black tea and mineral notes, giving way to a floral and minerally finish. The firm tannins are well-integrated and juicy acidity keeps this lively. Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2029.
