Already so well integrated. Without knowing, I guessed older than 2013 as it was already delicate.

Excited to try this producer. Towards the lighter end of the spectrum for C-R but perfumes and elegant. Pepper, smoke, gamey and minerality. Not super structured.

This has potential. Would love to try in 8 to 10 years. Even with decant it's a little tart now, but it has all the right stuff in all the right places. SS

Cassis with tiny bit of spices. Supple yet firm. Long, long finish.

If you get the opportunity to taste this, do it! There is very little of it in the United States, and it has amazing complexity. 100% Syrah; on the nose, cherries, cigar, lavender, violet, bacon/venison. On the palette, blueberry, pencil lead, licorice, and crushed dried flowers.
