Winemaker's Notes

Made from 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier, this is an elegant, concentrated and delicious Cote Rotie - and the price is certainly right! For under $20 per bottle, you'd be hard pressed to find a better expression of old world Syrah, with dark pepper, plum and blackberry flavors. Phenomenal value!

Critical Acclaim

"Very juicy, with notes of licorice and blackberry leading the way for more typical tobacco, iron and sweet toast notes. The long, briary finish shows excellent cut and grip. Best from 2008 through 2015."

I shared with wine with a friend from France who tasted it blind. She immediatly could tell that it was Frech. We continued tasting the wine for the next 1.5 hrs and it didn't evolve much. Ok wine, nothing to rave about thought.

I had great hopes for this wine, but the French wines failed to impress again. Very sharp and unpleasant.
