Ooooh. A savory and complex nose. Blood, licorice, sexy deep fruit. Some fine tannin and a beautifully cold blooded and supple mid palate. Great intensity of fruit with hints of leather and tobacco and leather. Really good stuff.

This is truly lovely. Deep sexy blue fruit, loads of herbs and saline gnarly fruit. Really complex, sweet notes and long. Very, very good.

Deep blue and red fruit on the nose. Sour cherry and intense blueberry. Still quite primary, dome leather and a savory bloodiness. Beautifully balanced and young. Decades ahead.

An expressive wine, dense mature, with character, aged but still firms tannins with great spicy - I really love the wines from this estate

Decanted and left for 60 min. Still pretty dense and tight, but great Purity and structure. Try again in 7-10?

Beautifully expressive, still youthful, but all the hallmarks of majestic Syrah, showing some oak evidence, but it is quite well integrated, I'd love to see this in 10yrs, huge potential.

Took a little to come around but super tasty once it did. Round, full bodied and taking no shit from the non Rhone drinkers... Lots of youth yet but in a good place
