Tasting

The plot selection of this Syrah gives an extraordinary richness and aromatic purity. One plunges into a bold wine that delivers aromas of ripe fruit accompanied by delicate empyreumatic scrolls that give the Syrah fine notes of leather. The mouth is long, graceful and ends on a beautiful natural freshness revealing a tip of licorice which highlight the whole.

Awards

Patience she just came out ...
