2018 E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage, France, Rhone, Wine Review
This is 100% Syrah from the northern Rhone. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is great with black raspberries, smoke, slight gamey meat and black olives. Medium to full bodied. Light tannins. Good balance. Lovely jammy texture. On the palate, loads of ripe black raspberries with some char and black pepper. Long finish. This is great on its own and will work well with foods. Grilled meats would be a nice choice. Drink over the next eight to ten years.
