This classic bottling is co -fermented with Viognier (1.4%) á la Côte -Rôtie style, to heighten the bouquet with high-tone aromatics. The bouquet is ripe with juicy dark fruits, low earthy elements veering into black pepper, with coffee, cocoa and spice; all of which are echoed on the palate with dense flavors and a lengthy finish. The velvety textured tannins beg for another sip.

This was a great vintage for hillside grown Syrah. The intense aromas, flavors and tannic structure expected from our fruit will allow this wine to evolve in your cellar for six to eight years.
