A GSM with the Syrah as top dog. Complex aroma of river bank, damask rose, strawberries, melons, and banana laffy taffy. Lots of wet forest too. Flavors are dense, intense and unfamiliar. Slightest hint of dried high acid bananas like they have in Brazil. Bloody steak from the Syrah. Herbal as well. A lemon thyme or tarragon hit. Very dry and chewy. This is a lovely Rhône blend. Rich, elegant and confounding in a good way like an old French film.

Great everyday Rhone! Depth, earth, some oak all for under $20.

Dark forest berry and plum. The 60% Syrah shows with dark fruits. Tobacco and smoke join on the palate with juicy fruit and medium weight. Very enjoyable.

You know that shy girl with glasses that never talked? Well 10 years later at the reunion she’s got a black dress, incredible confidence, and is making all the wives jealous. This wine reminds me of her. Starts out both herbal and heavy plumb. Interesting combination. Earthy and tastes like dried flowers. Great combination and an interesting flavor profile. Opens nicely. Great value too.

(15.5/20) Вино с ароматами спелой сливы, фенхеля и кожи. Умеренная кислотность, сухие танины. Неплохо.#DVR2017
