Deep, deep purple with medium garnet undertones and a wide brim. Pretty classic Rhône nose full of violets and red and blue fruits slowly giving way to cracked black pepper and earth. So much lighter than I was expecting because I’ve been drinking so many domestic Syrahs lately. There’s absolutely nothing cumbersome going on here. Silky and smooth on the tongue with a nice streak of spice running throughout. Much more on the easy drinking side of Crozes-Hermitage with some underlying power. Dark cherries, blackberries, baking soda, and milk chocolate on the palate with a ton of smoke coming in later. French Syrah really is where it’s at.

A nose rich of spices (pepper, cinnamon, clove) and nice strawberry jam. In mouth appear wooden notes (bark especially), and raw meat. A general feeling of an autumnal afternoon. Nicely balanced, great potential.

Powerhouse Rhône producer. Good value, nice weight and complexity. Subtle spice and firm tannins. Delicious!
