Awesome wine. Like a baby Hermitage Blanc. Nose of yellow fruits, minerals and loads of gras. Gorgeous depth. Almost a pastry like element as well. Elegant, nimble and super fresh with great purity and depth. Elegant and balanced with juicy fruit and nervy intense minerality. Juicy and explosive with a long lingering finish. Really stays with you. — 17 hours ago

Le Méal Ermitage Syrah 2003

Dark scarlet tawny, almost opaque. Strongly scented. Notes of kirsch, dark soaked cherries, blue fruit, herbs, and some pine wood. Powerful in the mouth. Almost over the top. A bit hot and Port-like, and a bit too stewy to enjoy unless accompanied with something like cheese to tone it down. Representative of the vintage, but not my preferred style. — 14 days ago

Solid #syrah with #gamey touches and that sort of lavender black olive spice with potential for bottle aging. Very pleasant. #rhone #hermitage #crozeshermitage — 17 days ago

l'Ermite Ermitage Syrah 2000

Mid to dark ruby in colour with a tawny edge. Lovely perfume with roasted meats, dried flowers, and earthy notes. With time in decanter more barnyard cowyard notes developed, but in no way was this Brett. On the palate ultra savoury but also quite sweet initially. Soft resolved Tannins and ready to drink. Not unlike a top Burgundy with more fire power. After about 6 hours it had developed tarry aromas with coal dust and liquorice. Loved this wine. Usually have our top wine of the week at Sunday lunch. This matched well with Roast Pork. — 13 days ago

La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2009

Yes!! This is currently a big, bold, inky wine. But the elegance and femininity is lurking, waiting to show its silky nature in a few more years. Good thing to come for those that can hold this for 10-20+ years.... amazing. — 14 days ago

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2015

This is a Crozes-Hermitage that strives to ditch the prefix “Crozes.” Saturated color. Athletic nose has iodine, crushed granite, black uncrushed peppercorns, raw lamb and blackberry pomace. Savory and vigorous in the mouth, still seeming quite youthful, with the tannin and acids to go quite a few more years, though very nice now. — 16 days ago

Nice, had that same bottle about 4+ years ago. Likely in a better spot now.

Les Picaudiéres Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2016

Grape, blood, stewed fruit, cherry cola. Prune and lively berry of all colors. Some sweaty funk.
Blazing acid and gentle tannins. Just beautiful. What I want with all food.

1990 Jaboulet Aine La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah. Post Thanksgiving dinner w J&L B and Ash/Sush at Tosc. We thought the bottle might have been off. No savory notes, very uni-dimensional, abrupt finish. — 6 days ago
