Sick sick wine that is really in the ZONE. Sick nose. Honeysuckle, iris, white flowers, tropical fruits, big granite and wet stones. Complex and airy with wonderful layered and nuanced complexity. Baroque yet chiseled. Rich, unctuous and textured with fabulous custard like texture and lovely acidic snap. Big structure but it’s so juicy and so balance it’s ridiculously drinkable. Long finish of earth and wet stones with some honey. Stunning. — 13 days ago

Les Bessards Hermitage Syrah 2003

This was mine but blind, thought it was a Cote-Rotie, as the nose seemed to have that tropical Viognier tinge. Orange peel, leather. Light and dense at the same time, faded strawberry, black cherry. Touch of brett kept this from a higher score, but agree with Joe that this is peaking (though I think it could stay there a while...). Outstanding. Pretty clear where my Syrah/Shiraz biases are head-to-head. — 3 days ago

Domaine des Grands Chemins Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2010

Very serious Crozes sporting intense smoky bacon and sausage right up front. There’s almost a pepperoni type note to this wine- intensely meaty, smoky and savory. Violets showing up on the nose with air. Juicy blackberry on the entry and finishing with freshly cracked black pepper. For me this is what Crozes Hermitage can and should be in terms of quality. Perhaps too sweaty and savory for most, but a serious wine that is drinking great now and will do so for another 5-7 years. — 12 days ago

Domaine Combier

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2016

Maximum flavor, minimal alcohol. Clean, straightforward Syrah: raspberry, black olive, herbs, smoked meats, meat juices. Intense, persistent minerality. Elegant. Combier’s best Crozes of the ‘10s. #combier #crozeshermitage #syrah

‘99 Chave Hermitage blanc off a list for $215? Lucky me.

In a word, stunning. Waxy and fresh, warm citrus and mineral aromatics, spiced, floral and wide on the palate.

@Seth Morgen Long finding “bargains” always adds to the experience. Feels like a game of treasure hunt.
