    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2006 vintage produced wines with more forward fruit than 2005, but with good tannic structure and at least 20 years of aging potential in a good cellar.

    Blend: 93% Syrah; 7% Viognier; partial destemming.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The exquisite 2006 Cote Rotie La Turque may or may not be as good. It exhibits exceptional aromas of bacon fat, smoked duck, soy, black currants, blackberries, and graphite. Full-bodied and dense with good acidity, outrageous concentration, and a finish that lasts over 60 seconds, this is amazing stuff!

    The Wine Advocate

    Ruby-red. Sexy, perfumed bouquet of cherry-cola, cassis, smoked meat, violet and minerals; this could only be syrah. Pure and sweet, with incredibly deep red berry liqueur flavors and a strong note of licorice. Bright and focused on the endless finish, with lingering mineral notes adding more energy. Range: 94-97

    International Wine Cellar

    This pulls together grip, minerality and fruit, with charcoal and espresso laying the foundation, supporting crushed plum, fig sauce and mulled currant fruit, which then gives way to a vibrant, iron- and tobacco-filled finish that leaves a mouthwatering feel. Very impressive. Best from 2011 through 2030.
