Pure pleasure. So unlike the previous entry, the anointed Wine Advocate pointster, here you have just the real thing. Gorgeous texture, grape Kool-aid, rum-soaked currant, a woodsy peppercorn. On the finish, a note of cherry soda. Superb sipper. All Syrah, all Rhone. However, weak at dinner. The tannins and youth of the wine paled with a very mild turkey dish. Too bad. For a hearty meal it needs more time, much more time.
