Inky ruby. Lively red fruit, incense and floral qualities on the perfumed nose. Pliant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show good depth and energy, with a subtle violet pastille nuance emerging with air. Smoky Indian spices build on the long, focused finish, which is framed by gentle, slow-building tannins. Distinctly different than the denser, darker 2009 bottling of this wine, which I was able to retaste with Philippe. That wine has picked up a smoky, gamey quality over the last year, which adds complexity to its sappy dark fruit flavors; I've seen it being offered for around $20 lately, which makes it an outstanding value."

Crozes-Hermitage is the largest of the appellations of the Northern Rhône, comprising just over 2500 acres planted to Syrah for red wine and Marsanne and Roussanne for white. The vineyards are largely on the plain, producing reasonably priced and straightforward wines, but there are also some superb hillside vineyards which provide concentrated, long-lived wines. In general, the red wines have prototypical Syrah flavors, spicy and persistent, with vigor and intensity of flavor in an appealingly rustic style.
