Tasting notes
Aged in new French oak, this medium-bodied red presents quintessential black olive and savory herbal notes that are balanced by a streak of minerality that runs through the wine.

This has a lightly firm, singed wood frame, but plenty of flesh to soak that up thanks to the core of damson plum, blackberry and licorice snap notes. A nice briary edge hangs on the finish. Needs just a little more time to integrate fully. Best from 2013 through 2019. 415 cases made. –JM

Michel Tardieu’s 2009 red Northern Rhone offerings still have a long wait in barrel before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. They all reveal deep colors as well as abundant concentration, structure and power. I thought the best cuvees were the Cornas, St.-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage and Hermitage. The Hermitage and Cornas appear capable of 15 or more years of evolution, and the Crozes-Hermitage and St.-Joseph should last at least a decade. The Cote Rotie Vieilles Vignes exhibited great fruit, but it was not a sensational wine in comparison with the other efforts.

Technical notes
From 50+ year old Syrah vines planted in the Saint Pierre de Boeuf, Mauves and Chavanay communes.
