Loved this one out of the bottle and DID give THIS one out for Christmas, as we had intended to do with the Grand Cote from the same vintner. Wish we had more than another bottle sitting around to taste later. This one is big with a good fruit nose. Good tannins without the pucker of some ... We'd take more at a lower price point, but there are better values out there.
Did not really like this. Rather light for a Syrah.
