One of the few Chateauneuf du Pape wines produced using 100% Syrah is peppery, floral, earthy, on the red berry side of the style range with a medium-bodied, spicy, salty, crushed rock, olive and dark, red berry profile. The peppery finish has length and density. This would be a fun entry in a blind tasting. Drink from 2024-2038.

Medium-bodied, strawberry, and cherry-filled charmer with loads of sweet, red fruits on the palate and in the easy-to-like finish, cocoa, and kirsch-filled finish. This will be quite nice to open on release. Drink from 2022-2028.

One of the few Southern Rhone wines produced using 100% Syrah, the wine is dark, meaty, roasted and savory, with a strong, iron and saline note on the palate that accompanies the dark plums and firm tannins. The wine finishes with a long melange of peppery tones along with its red fruits. Give this a few years to develop and round out. Drink from 2023 - 2034

Meaty, juicy, smoky and spicy, you find ripe, earthy cherries, herbs and pepper on the nose and palate. The wine is fresh, rich and long, with a tannic backbone that demands some time in the cellar. Made from 100% Syrah, this is an interesting wine to taste, as there are only a handful of Chateauneuf du Pape wines made using Syrah exclusively.

Garrigue, under brush and cherries blend perfectly here. Medium bodied, fresh, and with juicy dark cherry notes in the finish, you can drink this young, for all its sweetness and spicy, peppery fruits. The wine was made from 70% Grenache and 30% Mourvedre.

Smoke, old wood, burning leaves, barnyard, spice and dark, meaty red fruits emerge in the glass with a bit of swirling. On the palate, the wine has power, concentration and a full body. The tannins are gentle. There is an iron quality to the dark red fruits. Give this time in the bottle and it should be even more complex.

Jammy black cherries and licorice form the basis of the sweet, fresh, medium bodied, forward, polished wine. You should drink this on the young side.

The second vintage for this unique 100% Syrah. Peppery, spicy, stony and tannic, this is going to need time to soften its tannins and allow all of its smoky, red fruits and oak to come together.

Making its debut, this is one of the few Chateauneuf du Pape wines, made from 100% Syrah. With a touch of oak in the nose, coupled with pepper, smoke and black raspberries, the wine spicy, fresh and round, especially when you consider it's made exclusively from Syrah.

Medium bodied and probably close to fully mature, the wine focuses on the red fruit side of the style range with wild strawberry and kirsch notes out in full force. The wine is fresh, spicy and elegantly styled. This does not require decanting. Just pop and pour.
