When Eric introduced this wine he describes the terroir as similar to Cornas. This is the first vintage where that's really been apparent to me, and boy, is it ever. There is so much muscular tannin at first that it starts out totally dry and backwards. The fruit sweetens up in the glass a bit but it's really the leftovers two whole days later where it finally gets friendly and easygoing and brings the fruit into the foreground. At that point, it features the signature fresh, piercing purity and succulence that typifies the house style for me, with just a hint of the tannin that was totally dominant on day one.

Cool sweet bluish Syrah fruit, a little bit of fresh blood and iron, talc. Seems coiled up and young, but still surprisingly generous now. Can't wait to see how this ages.
