Jean-Luc Colombo Syrah Vin de Pays d'Oc la Violette 2007

Member Review by joebernardinoATyahoo:

Another winner from Jean-Luc. Yesterday I had one of their 2007 Cotes du Rhone so I was inspired to try this one today. This one is less fruit forward, more leathery and earthy, nice black licorice, cinnamon, and lingering tobacco and blackberry jammy finish. A real nice one, try it moderately chilled I think a chill does a Syrah justice.
