My Take: This was textbook northern Rhone syrah, cracked pepper meets deeper and fresh red and dark red fruits with a nice smokey note and spicy cedar tones.  Good muscle from the older vines and tougher site to grow in.  Fresh on the palate, great length on the finish.  Another superb value from this up-and-coming estate that should be on your radar, it's on mine!

Saturated ruby. Lively cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by hints of pungent flowers and cracked pepper. Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering jammy black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors that quickly open up with air. Closes long and broad, showing very good clarity on the gently tannic finish.
