Quite lovely! A little closed the first day, would recommend aerating at this time. Second and third days more giving in the nose. A more elegant, higher toned Crozes-Hermitage. No rustic tannins, more refined.

Absolutely Brilliant. Gorgeous, not a super long termer, but will improve for 2 more yrs. A great Syrah. So pure, soft and sexy.but with structure and acid.

Thought I detected a volatile acidity issue when it was first opened, but it dissipated over an hour. Very satisfying in the end. Wine team handled questions very well and offered to replace. They’re pros.
