This is a Grenache Syrah blend. Dark ruby in colour, unusually deep for a rosé. On the nose, it has ripe berry, cranberry, orange peel with a bit herbal spiciness. Served slightly cold at 11-12. Unbelievably rich on the palate, medium to full body, very ripe, good concentration, long finish. At peak. One of the few rosé that can age and develop.
Unusual color - burnt orange. Improved the longer it was in the glass. Preserved unwashed blueberry flavors. The closest comparison I could think would be Tavel. But this is much richer and more alcoholic than even a big Tavel Rose'.
