Beautifully intense. So dark and broody. #RebouleduRhone

Way too young. Still fantastic - superb balance. Dense but not heavy. Smoke, cracked pepper, slight meatiness. Lots of potential.

Chave cherry popped tonight. Dense and wound up. So young. Behind the tight coil there was a tease of what it will become. Complex and layered. Smoked meat, crushed rock, iron, violet, black tea, leather, animal hide, cracked pepper, and this super savory/umami character I can't get out of my head. Structured and firm but still displaying a considerable finesse to the tannins. Textural juxtapositions abound. This wine has so much soul.

Absolutely superb. Mouthfeel the definition of suppleness in Syrah. Young.
