I was afraid I’d be committing infanticide opening this 2018 so soon, but this really could not have been more perfect, showing with tons of ripe blackberry and boisenberry fruit, fresh herbs, kalamata tappenade, and subtle oak notes. Giving, silky, and ready to drink, I don’t think this needs any further aging. She’s beautiful as is.

Beautiful expression of Syrah showing perfumed aromatics of black cherry, raspberry, mineral, smoked meat, black pepper, olive, wild herbs & violet. A producer to look out for!

To overestimate the joy of the red fruit here would be sadly misplaced. So pure, so intense. Cloudy red, pure bramble nose. Jenny & Francois importer
