Winemaker 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

ST 97
International Wine Cellar

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

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!
Barrel Sample: 95-97 Points

Very impressive. Best from 2011 through 2030.
