From a parcel planted in 1967 on granite, this is an older clone of Syrah that was more common in the 1920s. Instead of the black olive notes typical to Syrah, this wine shows off a delicious mixture of bacon fat and blackberries. There is a lifted cranberry note on the finish, with spice and fine mineral detail that makes this more finessed than any Crozes-Hermitage I've come across. Make no mistake, this is still dense Rhone Syrah, but concentrated layers of iron, garrigue, feral notes, and minerals could deceive you into thinking it's a lighter wine at first. It quickly reveals remarkable depth and fruit that is dark, mysterious, and ultimately irresistible. Grapes are destemmed so tannins are present but well-integrated. It has the structure to age for a decade or more, but the wine is in terrific shape to drink now. It's hearty and nuanced, a perfect cold-weather red that hits your head and your heart in equal measures. Jonathan Kemp
