2013 Champoux Syrah
"The POUX" coming from the famed Champoux vineyard and so valiantly referred to by our followers will bring immediately to the palette memories of fresh herbs, summer flowers with a light coat of dust. You will also sense some lavender, sage, and a touche of oregano. The texture of the wine is soft with firm but gentle tannins providing an elegant structure. Flavors of plum and raspberry mix with a hint of savory bacon wrapped dates at its core, the wine is juicy and crisp, finishing subtly with hints of toasted marshmallows.
