Really tasty Southern Rhone blend; lots of red berry fruit, floral scents, anise and other spices, along with just a hint of leather. The palate is rich, but nicely delineated with good balance and nice freshness to the fruit. Goes well with food and has at least 4-6 years of solid aging potential.
Man, I thought this bottle was in a beautiful spot. Everthing was in proportion, the fruit was nicely balanced by the acid and had none of thecandied nonsense you find in many. Not old world earthy by any means and less airy and ephemeral as some of the others such as Betz, but a dang good bottle of wine.
Decent N Rhone Syrah nose of peppered meat, herbs, olive, with a little warmth sneaking in. Decent palate of red and black fruit, pepper, herbs, and chocolate. Mid palate was lacking as was the finish. Enjoyable drink but for the money a bit underwhelmed.
Terrific sleeper wine we found in Walla Walla. Local favorite. Nice deep color (grenache, sryah, mourvedre), fruity, great finish. Barnyard, grassy when first poured. This drifts off a little, but still more pronounced than earlier tasted bottles.
