Community Tasting Note

  • Francophile1 Likes this wine: 93 points

    September 5, 2023 - I was expecting an extracted, syrupy Syrah, but what I found was a balanced, medium bodied, elegant Syrah that stays true to its Northwen Rhone roots. While still on the young side, it opens up after a 1-2 hour decant.
