The 2014 Syrah En Cerise was a touch more streamlined and reticent on this occasion, yet still offers beautiful black cherry and cassis fruits, underbrush and a hint of espresso roast in a full-bodied, silky, elegant style. Like all of Christophe’s wines, it will benefit from short-term cellaring. (JD)
Impeccably built and expressive, with vivid raspberry, smoky meat and crushed rock aromas and impressive, harmonious flavors of cherry, pepper and orange zest that linger toward refined tannins. (TF)
Soil is 'Freewater cobbly loam' over pure basalt - the bedrock stratum is apparently one of the largest areas of basalt lava on the surface of the earth. Planted at 849 ft. Parly whole bunch, fermented in Nomblot barrel-shaped concrete tanks. 2-3 weeks on skins. Aged in French oak, 20% new. TA 5.3 g/l, pH 3.85. Total 361 cases. Heavy bottle. Deepest crimson, smoky and just a little toasty. Lovely peppery Syrah purity shines through. Dry, refined texture. Elegant and ethereal and a super-fine chalky texture. Dry and mouth-watering finish. 17.5/20 points (JH)
