Purchased in 2010 and cellared for 4+ years. Dark opaque red, aromas of stewed plums, dark chocolate, a touch of spice, and wet earth. Very powerful, intense aromas but not complex or attractive. Good acidity and balance, but a bit dirty with flavors of black fruits, dirt, and damp wine cellar. Finishes clean and dry. Really doesn't have much Syrah character. Drink now.
smells well northern rhone syrah, not earthy but more like a grill brick with under tones of subtle red fruit and dried potpourri, the palate has a gorgeous texture, plums, very one dimensional but not in a bad way hint of raspberry
Conc: Solid lovely drinking at its peak I think now
Solid, good food wine. Syrah at 12.5%, what a pleasant change. Served against a grilled sirloin, and that was nice. Nice minerality in the core, purple fruit. Finish was a bit short, but a pleasant wine and drinking well now.
