I get that this is supposed to be "modern", but I find it bridges across a multitude of styles. Incredibly delicious, and unmistakeable Northern Rhône Syrah.

A bit on the feminine side: floral, light spice notes, soft bramble and plum fruit. Tart acid streak should give it a long life.

One of the most delicate syrahs I've ever had. Delicate acid, subtle red fruit. Very nice.
