  • Opaque purple. Bold fruit with good structure, medium body and a long finish.

  • Ripe but not too ripe, this is thick-textured but without too much of a manipulated feeling, playful up front but an over-extracted finish. Solid and fruity but not very interesting to me. Leans toward the mainstream.

  • Opened and into a round flat-bottomed cocktail glass, the best I could do for the hotel we used for the evening. Real good Jremose syrah, the best of what the vineyard does with iron, dark cherry, terrific intensity, a base of moderate acidity and bitter chocolate. With more air, it picks up a blueberry compote note, just a hint of hint to frame the edges of the wine, really nicely. My last bottle, this can age well given what I find inthe glass (shown with about 90 mins of slow ox, for context)....finished 2 days later, with a good dollop of chocolate and blueberry skin now, smoothed out and in my view, ready to drink. Delicious.

  • As part of the virtual tasting on Wineberserkers "One from the Other Side." This was Salil's trade for my 2000 Cantemerle. Popped and poured. Drank out of Zalto Bordeaux glasses. Drank half today and will drink the rest tomorrow. This is a fruit driven wine. Still very primary, with just a tiny bit of . Dark fruit, black and red fruit. A tiny bit of spice but substantially outweighed by the fruit. Smooth with no tannic bite. An excellent but not outstanding wine. 89 points at Day 1.

    Much improved in Day 2. Soft pepper spice, allspice and still lots of dark fruit. Long finish. a bit of citrus acidity.

  • Light with not a lot of forward flavor. Did better with time. Definitely decant for a few hours before consuming.
