RATINGS

92Wine Spectator

A fresh, elegant-styled vintage that is also at peak now, but should hold. There's tangy red currant, violet and white pepper notes backed by brisk but integrated structure.

90Robert M. Parker Jr.

...exhibiting notes of leather, meat, smoke, and black fruits. It will undoubtedly be controversial as it reveals obvious brett, and its meaty, muscular personality may be too wild for tasters weaned on clean, New World wines.

90Stephen Tanzer

Explosive, superripe aromas of macerated black cherries, woodsmoke and ash, with distinct notes of port-like surmaturite: molasses, maple syrup, and roasted black fruits. Superconcentrated and extremely ripe, but with enough acidity...

REGION

France, Rhône Valley, Northern Rhône, Côte-Rôtie

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.”

TYPE

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.
