Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2003
from Hermitage, Rhone, France
An exceptional 100% Syrah from the Northern Rhone for a great price!
From 35 year old vines. Dark red in color. Full of red fruit, cherry and strawberry with delicate oak aromas. A structured wine bursting with blackcurrant and vanilla. Remarkable freshness with notable and refined tannins to due long oak ageing.
"The dense purple-colored 2003 Crozes-Hermitage possesses sumptuous aromas of tapenade, creme de cassis, cherries, and spice. Beautifully-textured, full, and long, it will offer impressive drinking over the next 10-12 years."
-The Wine Advocate
"...This is textbook Northern Rhone syrah, with supple red berry and floral flavors along with a sweet underbrush quality reminiscent of Morey-Saint-Denis... This will be an exceptional value."

Dark, mouthfilling flavors - black cherry, olive tapanade, spice. Dyn-o-mite in a bottle.

What an exceptional bottle of Syrah from the Northern Rhone! Similar in style and flavor to many $100+ bottles of Hermitage I've tried.
