2013 noir - 92 pts from Wine Advocate

Made from 86% Syrah and 14% Counoise that was har­vest­ed from the end of August to the mid­dle of Sep­tem­ber, the 2013 Noir spent 18 months in rough­ly 60% new French oak (the Syrah was in 60% new, the Counoise in 50% new). It offers ample black fruits, smoked herbs, pep­per and damp earth char­ac­ter­is­tics as well as medi­um to full-bod­ied rich­ness, beau­ti­ful­ly pol­ished tan­nin and a great fin­ish. It’s a seri­ous wine that stays in check and has an ele­gant, lay­ered per­son­al­i­ty that will drink well for a decade.
