Largely a Grenache-Mourvdre blend, the 2015 Miss Harry Harriet's Blend does incorporate bits of Cinsault and Carignan as well. Subtle spice notes add nuance to the straightforward cherry-berry fruit in this medium-bodied, supple wine. Hints of cinnamon, allspice and clove linger nicely on the softly dusty finish.
