Mine, so easiest to pick out blind, the last of my 6-case. Like the Chave, but more red floral, the palate loamy with mushrooms and leather, hints of cinnamon, bloody iron. Kept improving in the glass, achieving a lightness and length its case siblings never reached. I still say drink up, with a decant. Outstanding.

Lean and austere; showing herbaceous Syrah typicity, eventually revealing more savory and meaty character.

Aromas of tropical mocha but still holding on to vibrant fruit.

I still prefer early 90 and before especially for Guigal's Lala's. But can't complain as this is God's country for Syrah!
