  • Fresh, meaty and complex, with a little bit of funk as well. Still youthful but showing nice notes of maturity as it seems to be entering prime drinking time.

  • Ah quelle bouteille! Apres avoir été échaudé (le vin etait structuré et ferme, boisé, dur), celle-ci frôlait la perfection!
    Nez fin et complexe de syrah agée encore fraîche, sans patine « vieillotte », alliant petits fruits rouge, violette, cassis et sous-bois, des notes animales très discretes, un cuir fin, une petite olive, mais bizarrement rien d’oxydatif; cette bouteille est en pleine forme!
    En bouche, la finesse est au rendez-vous, le vin carresse plus qu’il ne coule, c’est un vrai bonheur! L’equilibre rondeur tanin fraicheur est remarquable, apportant soyeux et digestibilité.
    Au top!

  • From small bottle from Zak. Tasted double blind. Day 2. Exotic nose, maybe some VA. savory and umami. Marzipan and cherry fruit. This is very perfumed and has some age on it. Maybe a bit of soy, a bit of wood/cedar. I go back and forth between sorrel hermitage and maybe a Bordeaux. Now getting a little herbal. With more time the herbal adds some greenness. Very similar on the palate. It’s exotic with red cherries and marzipan some soy or beef Jerky or something. Very lively - a little high toned like the nose. Good acid tons of flavor. Finish is dark cherry and VA and soy.

  • PnP at Taj Campton Place. The last bottle of their stash; our MS informed us that this was waking up after a long sleep. Initially she needed some cajoling; some deft handling in the carafe to make sure there was some air but then did she dance up these aromas, these spices that take you to the rhone. Combined with some spicy indian paneer and lamb; it makes me believe even more; Syrah and Spicy Indian food are meant to be! Try one.
