Aromatics of cool, blue fruits and violets. Elegant and refined on the palate, with juicy tannins and a hint of minerality. Ready to drink now, and will continue to become deeper and more complex over the next 3 to 5 years.
"The 2009 Syrah Les Voisins is a gorgeous, exciting and totally thrilling wine, especially for the price. It boasts fabulous intensity in its dark fruit, with hints of smoke, tar and licorice that add depth to the highly expressive fruit. This is a fabulous wine for the money."
The Wine Advocate
"Inky ruby. Intensely perfumed nose shows sexy blackberry and cassis aromas complicated by mocha, candied violet and smoky Indian spices. Sappy dark berry preserve and gingerbread flavors are energized by zesty minerality, picking up candied licorice and floral pastille notes with air. Juicy and precise on the finish, which features fine-grained tannins and lingering smokiness. I suspect that this will be approachable in the next couple of years."
