Second time with the 2007; lovely Syrah typicity, balanced density, rich yet elegant, with vibrant acidity.

This was exceptional and played the perfect tune to a classic French meal. Classic in many ways yet surprising and novel simultaneously. Complex and overt, layered, and lengthy as hell. Roasted red plum, blackberry compote, crushed cherry, smoked meat, leather, licorice whip, crackes peppercorn, violets and lavender, roasted herbs, allspice, cardamom, baked earth. An amazing wine that I will be ingrained in my memory forever.

Absolutely singing today! What a treat. A bottle that didn't hold the bret thankfully.

Took some time to come out of its shell, but wow. Typical Syrah aromas of roasted meat, smoke, black olives, but incredibly nuanced and, at this point, restrained. Silky on the palate. tannins present but very integrated. Elegant as a wine gets

Ten more years and this is a 10 in my book, just starting to be enjoyable now.

Extra-Ordinary! Especially when the sommelier mistakes for a cheaper level and sells at the lower price, Its like riding a horse bare back in a cemetery on wet soil. Rough, a little scary, and dark but enlightening.
