97(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 1998

Saturated ruby-red. Knockout nose combines dark berries, tar, iron, mocha, sweet butter and smoky oak. Velvety and extremely deep; the texture is truly three-dimensional. Great grip on the finish. Has the balance and structure to develop for many, many years. Perfectly ripe tannins are still covered by fruit.

Syrah

While the grape is currently grown throughout the world, the most elegant Syrahs still come from the Northern Rhone valley, particularly the appellations of Côte Rôtie, Cornas, and Hermitage. Here, steep, terraced vineyards help produce full-bodied, intense, tannic wines loaded with white pepper and red fruit. In the vineyard, Syrah is largely cooperative- vines are productive, but not overly vigorous. Skins are thick, helping the grape...
