Leather, soil, dark fruit, smoked meat, subtle tannins, Well balanced acidity. Great with a hamburger. Thanks for sharing @jack

Very nice taste of the Rhône. Surprisingly mellow with nice tannic finish.

Still a little tannic but also a bit thin and probably too old. Especially after the Phelps.

Great example of savoury Syrah. Notes of chicken liver, foie gras, leather, olive, and herbs. Good, but not as exciting on the palate as the nose. On the lighter side of full bodied with balanced acidity. Fantastic wine with food. Try with beef or lamb stew.
