2013 vintage. Very structure-dominated with lots of gritty, stem-influenced texture. Spruce resin, lingonberry, pomegranate, blackberry, blueberry, tarragon, lavender, cedar, rocks, dried leaves, black tea. Lots going on here, and all evidence points to a long life ahead.

Now we're too young. Needs tome to flesh out. Tannic but also fruity and earthy at the same time. Needs some age to come into balance but will be great in time.

Maybe it's in my head but the purity and aromatic intensity of Serine always blows my mind. Classic N. Rhône Syrah with the volume turned up. Bacon fat, violet, black/blueberry confiture, cured meat, licorice whip, roasted plum, cigar ash. I love the mid-palate breadth of this wine and how well it showed after a proper decant. Wildly rustic while being poised and elegant, a great reminder of why I love N. Rhône wines

Really good with strong foods, by itself has a funky nose and an interesting flavor.

Smooth and balanced red, soft tannins. Red summer berries yet dry and medium bodied elegant red. More please!

Super only purple. Tar spice and smoke on the nose. Licorice, spice, fresh ripe fruit, and big mouth feel. It's still young but great none the less.
