Syrah requires a warm climate to fully ripen but enough moderating effect to produce intense, aromatic wines that are not overwhelmed by sweetness and alcohol. This Syrah grows in ideal terroirs of the southern Rhône and shows the varietal's typical spicy notes of sandalwood, violets, and black pepper. Syrah, with its deep flavors and firm tannins, is a natural match for grilled or smoked meat and dishes featuring herbs, roasted mushrooms, and onions. Seared venison or beef with black pepper and thyme or a Moroccan tagine of pigeon or chicken are complimented by the spicy characteristic of Syrah.

Pristine black cherry and raspbery flavors are accented by hints of green herbs and bramble in this full-bodied but invigorating red. It's delightfully easy drinking but nuanced and peppery. Ripe, integrated tannins linger elegantly through a long finish. Enjoy now-2024.

The 2018 Cotes du Rhone is 100% Syrah, sourced from the Gard (on the right bank of the Rhône) and Vinsobres (left bank, higher elevation). Violets, black olives and cassis and blueberry flavors provide terrific varietal expression in a medium to full-bodied package framed by silky tannins. Depending on your local pricing (I've seen it for as little as $12.99 or as much as $20), it should be a terrific value.

Lively savory, lavender, cherry and black currant notes mix in this friendly, open-knit wine, which reveals a tug of dark earth at the end. Drink now through 2020. 30,000 cases made, 20,800 cases imported.

Starting out the reds, this estate makes a terrific Côtes Du Rhône that's produced in solid quantities. The 2018 Côtes Du Rhône, which has already been bottled, is a no-brainer for a house red and offers lots of peppery dark fruits and herbal notes, medium body, good freshness and purity, and just tons of upfront charm. It's mostly Syrah and ideal for near-term drinking.
