Mild spring weather opened the growing season. The syrah and grenache vines set a balanced crop, but we decided to thin the mataro at veraison to gain intensity. Syrah contributes structure; grenache from 60-year-old vines adds floral notes and mataro brings spice and raspberry fruit to the finish. This appealing syrah based wine will be best over the next four to five years.
