Vinous Media 90
"Deep, shimmering violet. Spice-accented blueberry, cherry and a hint of cracked pepper on the fragrant nose. Appealingly sweet and lively, showing good depth and clarity to the juicy, smoke- and spice-tinged black and blue fruit flavors. A building floral quality emerges with air and carries through the subtly tannic finish, which leaves a hint of allspice behind. Made with 60% whole clusters and raised in used foudres and barriques." ~ JR
A young vine Syrah from several villages Chavanay, Ardoix, Saint-Michel-sur-Rhône, and Verin, all with a decomposed granite soil.
