45% each Syrah & Carignan with the balance Grenache, this is extreme winemaking from gnarly old bush-vines in the Pyrenees mountains a stones throw from the Spanish border, known as the Cote Catalanes. Ranging from 40-110 years in age, these vines are rugged and tough, enduring constant roaring winds from the mountains to the north and the Mediterranean just 10 miles east (and hence the name "Sea and Mountains" in Catalan). As you might imagine, with conditions like this there is very little wine made! "Pathetic quantities" of this truly terrior-driven blend that shows it's rugged flavors in the form of edgy, earthy dark fruit, though the Syrah offers some elegant juicy flesh to round out the blend. *organic & biodynamic
