Medium ruby, lovely ripe blackberries, cassis, licorice, a hint of earth bursts on the nose. Extremely elegant and lightweight in body especially given the vintage; would have thought there to be more fruit and roundness on the finish but there's a nice peppery lift after the fruit gives way mid-palate. Could be great enjoyed by itself on a warm spring or summer day!

Dark, reductive. Hasn't turned into its true Syrah self. Acidity is a tad flabby. Hope it holds up.

Classic on the nose and palate, but it really shows the leanness of the vintage.

A bit advanced, in a blind tasting it tricked me for an old Nebbiolo
