Misa Imports. This wine is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah sourced from 50+ year old vines. Alcohol 15%. This is a youthful wine with deep fruitiness that conveys richness from red then powdery black fruit. Though rich with a smooth start, the wine becomes more focused with a mineral middle and dry finish. *** Now – 2019.
