Rained during harvest so it lost some concentration. Blackberries, raspberries, some blueberries, hard dark minerals, leather, a little woody. Needs another 5-7 years.

A blast of pepper, plum and meat roasting over a campfire in the first hour. After being open for 10 hours, it blossomed into a very pretty, floral, gracious Syrah with amazing silky texture. Just turning the corner into early maturity, this one can go for a while yet.

Young, very young, but shows great structure with focused acidity. Needs time to show its true colors.

Celebrating the 80th birthday if a friend is a great excuse for opening this fleshy Northern Rhone red. Smoky, powerfull yet elegant and smooth. Wet autumn forest aromas, spicyness. Raspberry and blackcurrant. Well developed.
