2011 noir - 91 pts from The Wine Advocate
The most black fruit-driven on the lineup, the 2011 Noir (86% Syrah and 14% Counoise) delivers plenty of smoked blackberries, crushed flowers, cracked pepper, exotic spice and hints of eucalyptus as well as a medium to full-bodied, elegant mouth feel, juicy acidity and solid tannic grip on the finish. As with this estates other 2011s, it will evolve gracefully through 2021. Drink now-2021.
