slight secondary, high tones tight, intense red fruit, awesome extract that finishes uber long with delicate spice notes. Serious tannin verging on rustic followed by the finish.

Absolutely extraordinary syrah. Roasted blue fruit, tar, wild game, crushed violets, black pepper. Can't wait to tast in another decade.

Truly the wizard of Cornas! How you can get this level of colour and extraction, with this level of tannin management, only 4 yrs after vintage, blows my mind! Young, but seamless with an endless finish!
