84 points. This wine’s color is a pure berry red, and it have a medium thick body and viscosity. The nose, which shows very well, is full of sweet, lush and creamy vanilla custard and cherry pie tones. There is a slightly rustic, rural tone to this wine too that kind of makes me think of a house on the desert plains. There is a good kick of pepper (one of the things that Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage Syrahs are known for) and a bit of dried herbs, I also get a very faint touch of suede lingering in there lightly. The palate opens somewhat light, with tons of cracked pepper and some suede and raspberry tones. I get a gentle herbal quality and almost a tangerine-like component. The finish wears its minerality well, and I pick up on a soft berry/cherry tone mixed in with a good amount of dark stone. This is a well balanced, well made wine. It has good ripeness, a rich quality, and a smooth body. When I first opened it, it seemed a little thin, and the acidity and the alcohol showed through a little louder than they did after I had let it decant for some time. Not quite as interesting or well structured as I had hoped for, but still, to the price, it’s a nice, causal drinking syrah worth trying.
