2015 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage - Wine Review

5op7j7A - Imgur.jpg

Syrah from the Northern Rhone

Color - DEEP purple, this is a lovely opaque, inky purple.

Nose - lovely bouquet! cherries, dark red fruit/black fruit/stewed fruit, jam. Not really what I was expecting, pleasantly surprised!

Palate - grippy and a bit tannic but delicious. I would say medium acid and medium body (in my limited review skills), has lots of fruit - cherries/plums/jammy only a tiny bit of spice. The fruit definitely overpowers most of the tertiary flavors that are barely noticeable; pepper/olive

A fantastic wine, I will want to get another one to cellar.

88-90 points
