Can pretty much guarantee my happiness with an Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage. La guiraude is so pretty!

Loved this wine, so complex and layered. Still a baby though.

Serious Syrah. Bright, brambled raspberry. Reserved smoke and game. Subtle florals. Soft mineral. Tightly complex and weighty structure with approachable front and tannic finish that will undoubtedly be softened and developed with time.

Open 72hrs. Nose of an ash tray, smoky burnt tobacco. Palate is fresh, soft, red and lively with nice acid. Tart chalky finish. Nose is just too weird.

Still needs some time to resolve but there's enough fruit to enjoy right now. Right now with burgers.
