James Suckling 90
"A bright array of ripe red and dark berries with a fresh, punchy palate that has grainy tannins and darker fruit, together with licorice and pepper. Drink now." ~ JS
A peppery and juicy Syrah that pleasantly is not too dense, heavy or tiring to drink! Imagine that -- a Syrah you can drink glass after glass of! This young vine Syrah is from several villages Chavanay, Ardoix, Saint-Michel-sur-Rhne, and Verin, all with a decomposed granite soil. Twelve day maceration with twenty-five percent whole clusters in open-top wood tronconique vats followed by eleven months of aging, half in the vat and half in neutral barrels.
