La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2013

This is a deep ruby wine.

It offers robust notes of leather, anise, black cherry, pipe tobacco, peppercorn, nutmeg, baking spice, and earthiness; it has smooth, well-integrated, and velvety tannins.

100% Syrah 13.5% ABV.

Nice…we ate this with a nice marbley New York strip, and mashed potatoes with lemon zest. The wine went very nicely and cleansed the palette and then brought us back to wanting to take the next sip. A very nice burgundy, not dry but not to jammy. Good fruit (cherry), slight acid, good finish. I would like it rounder, but truly just right! — 9 days ago

Nobles Rives Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2019

A crunchy syrah that honors varietal notes on the side of fruit and freshness. Juicy and peppery with pretty notes of violet. Elegance and greed. To drink within 5 years of the vintage.

Une syrah croquante mettant les notes variétales à l’honneur du côté du fruit et de la fraîcheur. Juteux et poivré avec des jolies notes de violette. Élégance et gourmandise. À boire dans les 5 ans suivant le millésime.

l'Appel des Sereines Syrah 2019

Textbook Northern Rhone Syrah in a very affordable, drink now package. Bing cherry, currants, light and pleasantly integrated peppercorn and smoke notes, a touch of beef bouillon and soil. Medium bodied, pure textures of finely grained tannin and perfectly integrated acidity. Med+ on the finish. If you have been drinking new world syrah and are hesitant to buy in on a Cote-Rotie, Hermitage or even a Saint-Joseph, this is a nice entry point. — 5 days ago

This was WOTN. Wow. Briefly decanted. Really opened up nicely after some time in the glass. A little funk that blew off, and then amazing. — 19 days ago

NOTE TO DELECTABLE EXPERT - THIS IS THE WHITE, not red. 2022/2/20. A pretty sweet deal on mature (but not overly mature) Hermitage blanc - big, savory, burnished, broad. — 14 days ago
