Perfect syrah. Meaty nose, red fruit, rosemary. Dry tannins, buy not too much. Volume, amplitude and length.

Man this good. Beautiful black fruits, super meaty, great depth. No alcohol poking through. To me this is what the southern rhone is all about. CdP should pay attention.

Nose: Bright red fruit w dried herbs -thyme? & a little musty. Wonderful complexity carries through in flavor: bright fruit (cherries?) & herbs with good supportive astringency and some spice, but not overwhelming. Will stand up well to stronger meats. Delicious! Medium linger.
