I loved this wine but it hits one of my style sweet-spots. Wonderfully made, incredible for the price! Smoky, blackberry, spiciness with savoury elements.

Classy old-world charactered syrah. Deep ruby with a ruby rim. A developed nose of dried black fruits, pepper, and prosciutto. There was a dark floral element that added to the elegance. The palate has soft tannins and full body. The meaty and leathered flavours come through most prominently and the finish is pleasingly tart. Generous length. Apr 2011.

Wonderfully constructed, very satisfying and great example of N. Rhone Syrah. Cured salami, white pepper, dark berries and sage bush on the nose. Full bodied, griping tannins, tart dark cherry with a savoury and juicy core. A big wine, could cellar till at least 2015. Try with braised lamb shank or fresh pasta with wild mushrooms and pecorino. Tasted Jan '12.
