RR 90 Pts - According to Jeb Dunnick - In 1994, Eric Solomon visited the Vignerons d'Estezargues and met a young, passionate director/winemaker named Jean-Francois Nicq. By the end of the day, he & Jean-Francois had decided on a custom bottling of old vine Syrah from one of their best parcels, Andezon. This opaque-black, blockbuster Syrah could have been a top Northern Rhone wine, a la Cornas. What a find! Previously sold in bulk (vinous suicide) to a very famous producer in the Rhone Valley, Eric jumped at the opportunity and over a decade later, it remains one of the core items in the Eric Solomon portfolio.
Tasting Notes - Violet in color. The Syrah offers a lot of aromas on the nose including black fruit. The mouth is prevalent with spices of licorice and black olive with minerality, especially graphite and soot. Drink in 3-4 years as this mouthfeel will continue to develop over time bringing more complexity and power.
