2010 Crozes Hermitage, Syrah (France)
Gold Medal: 2013 San Diego International Wine Competition. Ripe with intense nose of plum, spice, blueberries and black pepper.
The wine is ripe and concentrated and certainly a more masculine style with an intense nose of plum, spice, blueberries and black pepper. Simultaneously floral and dense on the palate with flavors of macerated berries and gamey rose petals. This wine is meaty with tremendous depth, richness and pitch-perfect balance, sharing much of the transparent structure attributed to wines from the Rhône Valley.
Style: Medium, Fruity
Flavors: Blueberry, Pepper, Plum
