The most ethereal and delicate Syrah I've ever tasted, like a papier-mâché version. Sassafras root, green olive, sea salt, underbrush, peppered jerky, and damp gravel, with the essence of plum and blackberry. Acid-laden with no makeup, full-frontal Syrah.

At a good place. The Hudson usually does not rank as my fave A-R syrah, but the time in bottle works here.

Singing stories of northern Rhone. Salty olive tapenade and dark fruit. Will show better with age.

Wonderfully structured and elegant. Opened for two hours before consuming. Blue fruits and some olive coming through.

Fresh flowers, blue and black fruits, black and white pepper, cocoa powder. Pure, expressive, and racy.
