Smells of hazelnut (common in aged wine for me)
This has mellowed a lot sconce I first tasted it, it has relaxed most of its muscle, and has become a much more eager to please than tanning dominating wine.
Heft to the body, with some barnyard decay, dried prune, oil cured olives, Thai basil, anise.
Tannins are still ready to slap you around, just not as much as they did in 2012 the acidity reminds me of a rechargeable battery. In a green way.

Not the usual syrah from the CdR. Cinsault, I imagine ? Lots of flower. Some cranberries. — 8 days ago
Drank during debates. Paired with vegetable soup, croutons, and pecorino. Smooth, paired beautifully with an umami rich meal. Perfect for a chilly evening. — a month ago
