    Yves Cuilleron Syrah Collines Rhodaniennes 2018

    The “Les Vignes d’à Côté is a great representation of de-classified syrah that is coming to us from the south of France.

An elevage then proceeds for approximately eight months in a mix of stainless steel and small barrel. Licorice, herbs, anise, big with bold earth, bacon Learn More

    Sentinelle de Massiac Minervois Rouge 2018

    The Sentinelle de Massiac is a blend of 2/3 Syrah and 1/3 Carignan that delivers exceptional value. The region of Minervois might be one of the best kept secrets of the south of France. The organically grown grapes give flavors of garrigue, herbs, red and black fruits and a little bit of tart acidity. This is a region that has all the quality of its counterpart Cotes du Rhône, but the prices have remained modest…For the time being. Learn More

  5. Jolie Laide GSMV 2017

    Jolie Laide GSMV 2017

    Winemaker Notes: We worked closely with Ann to identify specific blocks in which we could capture and express the terroir and totality of this special place in one idiosyncratic wine. All picked together and co-fermented whole cluster, because, the whole is more than the sum. Raspberry scented Grenache, briny olive and peppered Syrah, violety garrigue laden Mourvèdre with citrus flower and lilac perfumed Viognier all coalesce into one ambrosial exultance Learn More

Black pepper shines through layers of blackberry pie, dried lavender and wet stone. The entry is a burst of peppery fruit flavors with a nice tannin balance, followed by more Grenache character on the mid palate. Learn More
  7. Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas 2017

    Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas 2017

    100% Syrah from the Northern Rhône giving us a textbook example of what Cornas can express. Authority, power, and finesse with hedonistic flavors of smoke, bacon fat, and earth. The beautiful thing about the wine is that it also showcases crème de cassis, violets, lavender, and rainbow pepper. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and a concentrated finish that seems to last longer than the delicate palate would suggest. Learn More

The long finish shows very finely beaded acidity embedded throughout, letting the fruit unfurl wonderfully. Best from 2020 through 2040." Wine Spectator Learn More
  9. Benevolent Neglect Syrah 2017

    Benevolent Neglect Syrah 2017

    Smoky, meaty and bacon-like in its qualities, and who doesn’t like bacon? There are also some reductive notes and woodsy barrel flavors. Black olive, and the “old-school” bologna with the pieces of pimento stuffed olive in it. This is all a good thing and it is coupled with herbal notes and chocolate that reminds one of a great Syrah from the Northern Rhône. Another high quality wine from Benevolent Neglect at a price that represents a good value. Learn More
