The Colombo family does a fine job in other appellations than Cornas, as with this sappy, energetic and highly perfumed Crozes-Hermitage. Already showing intense blackberry and floral character, it will improve over the coming decade. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2018)

Medium plus ruby with black fruits and violets on the nose. Pepper notes and savory finish. Medium plus finish. Excellent crozes and very approachable for a 2014 Syrah.
