Pure and silky, with layers of black cherry and crushed plum fruit woven with sanguine and macerated olive notes. Nice underlying cut runs through the sage-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018.
The 2006 Cote Rotie (100% Syrah, 9,000 bottles produced) was aged in 60-70% new oak casks. Its gorgeous nose of tapenade, creme de cassis, and flowers is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine displaying sweet fruit, good acidity, beautiful density, and a subtle dosage of oak.
Deep ruby. Raspberry, cherry, violet and minerals on the nose, plus an undercurrent of smoky minerals. The smokiness repeats on the palate, adding complexity to the sweet red and dark berry flavors. Cracked pepper and sweet floral pastille notes linger on the finish, which is admirably pure and persistent.
