Was fortunate to receive this wine as a gift from Adrian. Am not a Granache drinker so dont know what the normal characteristics of this grape is but felt this one had an intense dark fruitiness to it but with pleasant tannins and clear alcohol feel with a very sharp aftertaste. Very dry, cant taste any sweetness or mellowness to it. Definitely not the same as the usual cab savs, merlot, Pinot or the tempranillos I am used to drinking. Different and enjoyable and eye opening. It was the same with the viognier savagnin last time, Thank you Adrian for introducing me to various sides of wine!
