Lovely wine of intense purpleness. Blackcurrant, blackberry, violet and cracked black pepper over grilled steak. Medium bodied, minerally and well packed, though it feels fine boned and fresh too. Tannin is grainy and lends shape, bell-clear acidity, and a chalky finish of solid length. Pure Syrah fun, from a wonderful vintage. GARRY WALSH

(raised entirely in stainless steel tanks) Bright violet. Smoke-accented black and blue fruits, olive and a hint of musky earth on the deeply perfumed nose. Smooth and expansive on the palate, showing good energy to the deep cassis and bitter cherry flavors. Takes a sweeter turn with air and finishes long and broad, featuring gentle tannic grip and strong, spicy lift. JOSH RAYNOLDS, Vinous Media

Regarding the reds from 2015, I was only able to taste the 2015 Crozes Hermitage. It offers a classic Northern Rhône style with ripe blackberry, crushed rock, peppery herbs and hints of graphite. Medium+ bodied, beautifully concentrated, rich and structured, with present tannin, it will have a decade of longevity. JEB DUNNUCK, The Wine Advocate
