Sans Soufre Cornas Syrah 2014

Mag. Juicy and forward red and purple fruit tones with floral, game and olive notes that emerge with air. Don’t think this will fill out much over time, more of a short term drinker — 10 days ago

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2018

Warm and inviting black/purple berry fruit, woodsmoke, resinous herbs, granite, iron, taffy and apricot pit, ink. The front in is classic CH with the rich and voluptuous fruit character, but the finish departs with a serious edge of minerality and coarse tannin, reminiscent of classic Cornas. The vintage evident in the dry extract and ripening profile. — 2 months ago
