Staff Pick Notes

This wine is a classical example of Syrah from the North Rhone: It's concentrated and it shows flavors of cracked pepper, leather, black fruit and spices. It's a wine with smoky notes and smooth tannins. It has a long finish and flavors of dry herbs linger in your mouth. It is an elegant wine but, at the same time, it's made in a rustic style, being unfiltered and unfined. The vineyards are situated on a steep hill facing south, southwest. That means plenty of sun and consequently ripe grapes. I think it's a wine that show its character if accompanied with red meat, cured meat or BBQ. It's a great affordable alternative to the more expensive wines of the near area Hermitage
