This has lush, silky-textured layers of dark plum, anise and crushed blackberry fruit, woven with black tea and graphite notes through the finish. Impresses with its length and depth. Drink now through 2012. 11,000 cases made. –JM

Wine maker notes
Syrah Destemmed harvest Limestony sands, red clay, rolling stones. Aged in vat. Two sources compose this wine for many years now: I am impressed by the way they are consistant in quality whatever the vintage is. Vinsobres brings the freshness, the complexity, the strenght and the relief. The «villafranchiennes terraces» from the Gard area (huge terraces of rolling stones) generate the colour, the power, the generosity of a southern syrah. These two go so well together, are so complementary, that I will not change this recipe. What I look for in this wine is a bright fruit followed by a well-structured mouth with a good texture. I am not necesarly searching for an ageing potential, but apparently, this bottle does age.. The syrah from the southern rhone does not have the finesse of a good northern rhone syrah, but it has a fresh fruit full of charm.. Blackcurrant, oriental spices, liquorish, violet.
