“Whispers of smoke, bacon and violet lend complexity to ripe black plum and mulberry on this inviting Syrah. Its perfume and lavishly concentrated palate offer a bit more intensity than typically seen in Crozes-Hermitage. This briskly balanced, elegant wine with firm tannins is approachable now but should drink well through 2030.”

“Savory tones of forest floor and dried herb accent ripe but restrained black-plum and cherry flavors in this full-bodied Syrah. It's a concentrated, muscular wine with brisk acidity and firm, upright tannins. Quite taut now it should meld elegantly by 2020 and continue to improve through 2030.”

“Enticing hints of sweet spice, black pepper and bacon fat seduce on the nose of this rich but balanced Hermitage. Blackberry and cherry flavors are fresh and juicy but structured by firm tannins and brisk acidity. A polished wine already, it should intensify its savory, smoky complexities well through 2030.”

“There's a striking balance here calibrating bold, almost muscular ripeness against an invigorating granite edge. This wine is plump and full bodied, full of supple blackberry and plum flavors balanced by pert acidity and taut, penetrating tannins. It should be in peak from 2020–2035 but hold further.”

“Light, vivid orange-pink. A complex, expansive bouquet displays fresh citrus fruit and red berry scents, along with a suave floral overtone and a chalky mineral quality. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering intense strawberry, cherry pit and blood orange flavors that are lifted and given cut by a jolt of juicy acidity. Shows outstanding clarity and a sexy lavender quality on the finish, which hangs on with impressive, mineral-driven tenacity.”
