Winemaker Notes

#88 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

100% Syrah, Limestony sands, red clay and rolling stones. Aged in vat. The wines are crunchy and ripe because of the dry summer. After the fresh 2008, we come back to a stronger wine with length. This wine, made to be drunk in its youth, is often quite surprising. It will be fresh and ready to be crunched. Blackcurrant, blackberry, graphite, liquorish.
