Rocks, earth, herbs, spices, licorice. Bits of raspberry that go back and forth with kirsch. Medium bodied, fairly light for Syrah, with nice acidity, some minerality, and a nice licorice and herb finish. Enjoyed this a year ago, and love it now as well.
Not what I expected from a Syrah upon opening. Very thin and light, more Pinot like. Tried on the second day and it was a bit more Syrah like but still not what I had expected. Very. Little fruit left. I would say drink up if you have it, I will be drinking my second bottle soon.
So good. Nose of flowers and rocks. If I tasted this blind I'd guess this was a very lean northern Rhône and not from the States. Palate is nice and lean, rocks, violets, tight fruit in the background, and nicely integrated tannins. Fantastic.
