Cuvée Particulière Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2015

Inky wine from rim to rim. Charred boar ragout, marigolds and violets, in cedar planters. Chunky baker's chocolate baking, teak, black shoe polish, burnt mocha rye, mint in turned soil scribbled on by grape scented marker. Smoked plum, worm castings, raw chocolate, espresso grounds, graphite dust. Oak and pepper belched from an arcane volcanic sacrifice. Wood tannins mushroom and coat the tongue. Next year's harvest might be a lock with this kind of dark dedication. #crozeshermitage #crozes #rhonewine #syrah #purpleteetharesexy — 6 years ago

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2014

Graillot has changed my perception of Crozes-Hermitage permanently, though I won't forget those that I tried before that were insipid, weak examples. This shows everything I love in Syrah from the peppery, meaty and floral nose down to the palate of medium+ body and acidity, with finely firm tannin that should mellow more with age as this is barely 2 years old.

If you don't know Syrah or feel like you have not "gotten it" yet this is your huckleberry!
