2020 Scylla Carignan Blend

We are now officially on to the 2020 Scylla. Unlike previous vintages, old vine Grenache replaces Carignane as the dominant component of the 2020 Scylla. Here we have a gentle Siren song of a vintage, with a bit more perfume than the typically crunchy wine full of cut that has appeared under the aegis of Scylla, but that is the hallmark of our 2020 wines. Yet the longer it's in bottle, the more the darker, wilder side of these old vines seems to re-emerge from the depths once that initial Lyrical floral attack lulls us into complacency.
