Sneaky ripe for an Hermitage. A lot of fruit right out of the gate, but as it warms/breathes...The classic tar, meat and leather starts to emerge. What a wine

A Syrah/Shiraz night. Elegant smoke and hint of cigar tobacco on the nose. Great legs on this one. With mouthfeel to match. Well rounded and juicy with a hint of acidity on the finish - which goes on and on. A lovely supper for a cool spring evening.

Olives on nose, faint red berries, mild tannins, lingering floral. Had with porterhouse with compound butter and wedge.

Excellent Northern Rhône Syrah. Great balance of aromas and flavors. Cherry fruit that is encompassed by tar, meat and leather. A little bit of peppery spice. Great vintage of a historically great wine from a historically great producer.

Young tasting Syrah, oaky & spicy. Dark, sour fruit, with a meaty tinge.

A good wine but didn't blow me away like other JL Chave wines I have had. Dark ruby color, dark fruit and bubble gum on the nose. Spicy and a bit tart with a long finish. Paired with mole verde burrito and beans (maybe not the best pairing).
