Shows how a great vintage can lift a humble wine. Stellar stuff. Deeper and darker color. Deeper nose. Super floral, crushed granite, mashed flowers, violets, ripe but not too ripe. Very clean. Lovely nose. Palate has a mass of peppery fruit. Deep, ripe and complex with a huge granite footprint. Juicy and structured with ability to go 5-6 more years. Awesome.

I adore this wine. It's a crazy value in 2015. Big grapey nose. Ooh man. 15 is so dank. Olive, game, nice iodine and mineral notes. Some rocks. Deep, layered and refined. Palate is so juicy with enormous fruit and even more freshness. So deep. Tannic but they are ripe and sweet. So great.

God 15 is so good. From the Ardeche and this is ungodly good in 2015. Nose is all fruit as soon as you pop and pour. Some spice and a nice hit of leather. The color is insane. Enormous concentration and freshness. Such intensity. So long. Ripe tannins. Painful in a good way intensity. This stains the palate. It's young. Needs 2-3 years.

Great Syrah fruit. Dark and dense. Some acidity. A great steak wine. Bought from Fass selections.
