Tom's Notes:

This Syrah is stupidly silky and complex for the price, It gives me everything I want in a Rhone syrah..  Like the Clos Berenguer Priorat I asked the distributor how much they had in the warehouse and bought them out.

Winery Notes:

Overlooking the marshes of Camargue, our organic vineyards are cooled by Mediterranean breezes. This terroir of Rhône pebbles, atop veins of ancient seabed chalk – gives unique vibrance and minerality to our wines. With its silky texture and bright aromas of fresh fruit, this Syrah will go with a wide array of red meats, stews, and spicy dishes.
