Hands down my favorite Syrah producer but this was an infant’s baby’s grandchild. Just not much going on right now.

Magnum. 7 hours in a decanter and still a beast! Give me this "off vintage" any day! Dark fruit and tons of pepper.

JL managed some plump fruit and a healthy 14% in what is largely considered a cooler vintage.

Took a while to open, but once it did...floral, garrigue, pepper, red berries, good length and texture.

Time and time again I am really happy we bought a large quantity of the 2008 and 2009, absolutely beautiful wines.
