Smoky nose with black and purple plums, black raspberry liqueur and cedar brush. New World finishes on this classic Old World Syrah from the Rhone Valley. Nicely balanced and structured.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A deep ruby red wine from France's Rhone Valley with intriguing aromas of mineral, graphite, floral, fleshy hints and ink. A complex ripe dark fruit palate with stewed prunes, dark raisins and ripe plums,vanilla,ink,tea and fleshy nuances. Finely structured, soft tannins, and a long spicy fruitcake finish.
Enjoy with duck, game or roast lamb dishes.
Melissa Pulvermacher WSET rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pronounced nose of black cherry, pepper spice, smoked meat. The nose is very abrasive, but the palate is much softer with red and black cherry, cracked pepper and a gamey characteristic. Very well balanced with great all-around expression, but needs food to soften. A Chicago-Style steak or lamb with herbs de provence would pair very well. (Oct 2014)
Attractive replays of dark berry and smoky-mocha notes across the nose and palate of this full-bodied red wine. This wine is a blend of Syrah grapes from the winery's La Combe and Chevalier Louis vineyards, all of which are old vines. Deep minerality and a great expression of Rhone Valley terroir. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
