($30) Deep red. An impressively complex bouquet offers aromas of raspberry, cherry, apricot, nutmeg and potpourri, with a gentle smoky note adding interest. Supple, seamless red and dark berry flavors stain the palate, with tangy minerality providing bite. The apricot note echoes through the long, spicy finish. A very intriguing wine.

CS Wild and wild berry fruit on the nose. No shortage of garrigue character. Almost more like a Zinfandel than a Grenache! Perfect for those looking for a real hit of herbiness. A strong statement. Only just civilised!
