Grenache, Shiraz and Carignan from the real south of France--in fact, not far from Spain. This is a rich, smooth and generous wine with great appeal. I like the way these French wines maintain their structure and avoid the jammy, confected flavours that many Australian blends using these varieties (or some Mourvedre) can have.
It's a pretty good bet for the cellar, short to medium term, say up to five years.
Quality cork also but that's the least one would expect.
The name "Occultum Lapidem" means "hidden jewel".
