97Jeb Dunnuck

...huge nose of black raspberries, Provençal herbs, spice and saddle, sexy and opulent...

95+ The Wine Advocate

...full-bodied... Bursting with cassis, mocha and spice, it boasts a rich, creamy texture on the mid-palate, easing into a velvety finish backed by plentiful, powerful tannins.

95Wine Spectator

Features lovely high-pitched streaks of lavender and white pepper throughout... A long, refined mineral edge drives the finish, adding energy and cut.

94Vinous / IWC

Intense black raspberry, cherry cola and violet aromas are complicated by suggestions of licorice, mocha and exotic Indian spices. Lively and incisive on the palate, offering sweet, mineral-laced red and dark berry and spicecake flavors... Blends power and finesse with a deft hand and finishes impressively long and spicy, with velvety tannins coming in late.

17Jancis Robinson

Rich and ripe with great energy...very ambitious. Bravo! Essence of tea leaves.


France, Rhône Valley, Northern Rhône, St. Joseph

The Northern Rhône Valley wine region hugs the Rhône River from Vienne in the north to Valence at its southern tip. The French call the region Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales, and it is divided into eight appellations. Along with its neighbor to the south, the Southern Rhone Valley, it is famous for its big, tannic, intensely concentrated wines. Syrah is the only red grape permitted in AOC wines from this sub-region, though the Syrah can be blended with the white wine grapes Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne, depending on the regulations for each AOC. White wines are made from Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. Of the eight appellations in the north, the most admired wines tend to come from Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Hermitage, though there are certainly exceptional wines to be found in St. Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, St.-Peray, Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas. Along with Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, Rhône wines are among France’s best known and most collected wines. Red wines from these appellations are notable for their signature aromas of bacon and green olives, and for their depth. Robert M. Parker, a great champion of Rhone wines, has written that “the northern Rhône produces three of the greatest wines in the world – the white wines of Condrieu and the red wines of Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage.”


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
