A blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Of the Torbreck new releases, my favourite to drink, despite (or perhaps in spite of) the score. Aniseed, coal, raisins, raspberry and cherries and choc-licorice. It’s medium-weight but has excellent density and presence with fine grained silky tannin, balanced acidity and an overall profile where using the word ‘smooth’ could not be more appropriate. It’s appropriately sweet and spicy too, but has an earthy regional cast to temper. Deliciously, and dangerously, drinkable.
