''Black-plum and blueberry flavors are pristine in this fresh, fruit-driven expression of Northern Rhône Syrah. Medium bodied and mouthwatering in acidity, it's a juicy red with wide appeal.'' Anna Lee C. Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

''Lively, spice-inflected black/blue fruit aromas and flavors take on an earthy nuance as the wine opens up. Smooth and open-knit, showing good depth and a nicely persistent, smoky finish framed by smooth tannins. This is a classically styled Syrah.'' Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

''The bouquet gives crushed red berry fruits, raspberry with a sweet curl to it. The palate holds gentle berry fruits which develop as they go, the right way round rather than all at the start. There’s a note of licorice and darker, black cherry, fruit on the finish.'' John Livingstone-Learmonth, DrinkRhone.com
