Paul Jaboulet Aîné Domaine de Thalabert Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2009

The greatest Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert since the magnificent 1990 is the 2009. Jaboulet has nearly 100 acres in this appellation, and the 2009, which is bursting with potential, represents a great buy for Syrah lovers. Its dense purple color is followed by an explosive bouquet of blackberries, sweet cherries, licorice, Provencal olives, graphite and subtle smoke. Full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a terrific mouthfeel and palate penetration, this gorgeous offering should drink well for 15 or more years. Robert Parker

Blackberry and pepper. You don't need to try to find spice. It's quite silky, a wet silky. Comes from the Syrah. Interesting spice, maybe cardamom...nope, too warm. Maybe mace. A form of lavender, maybe silver lavender. For us to try to guess all these spices is amazing. But a let-down on the palate. A lack of something. Just get watery $18/92pts SWS206

Opaque purple/burgundy, smells of current, bacon, anise, date, cinnamon and white pepper, full body, delicate mouthfeel, round and firm tannin, the acidity and tannin are in perfect harmony, tastes of black cherry, blueberry, Kyoho grape, and prune, round and smooth long finish, fleshy and fruit driven with a sweet and savory aftertaste, yummy.
