Winemaker's Notes

Violet in color. The Syrah offers a lot of aromas on the nose including black fruit. The mouth is prevalent with spices of licorice and black olive with minerality, especially graphite and soot. This wine will continue to develop over time bringing more complexity and power.

Pairs well with hearty meats, such as game.

Critical Acclaim

"A blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache aged in 2-3-year-old French oak barrels for 12 months prior to bottling, the 2012 Andezon Cotes du Rhone has more of a Northern Rhone personality than usual. Notes of black olives, bacon fat, flowers, cassis and black cherries are found in this medium-bodied, fruity, soft 2012 along with excellent purity and noticeable tannins"
