Garon 2011 IGP Collines Rhodanienne Syrah
100% Syrah from vines just outside the Cote-Rotie appellation, above Bocharey on the Cote-Blonde. This is a beautiful junior Cote-Rotie showing lovely aromas of tart cherry, raspberry, violets, spices and musk. The palate is ripe but balanced with fresh acidity, with pretty and quite complex red fruits lingering on the palate. Really a pretty wine and a great value at $21. Only 125 cases made.
