This spicy vixen boasts loads of peppery plum, orange blossom and peach. Full-bodied and seamless, this is an exotic knockout of a wine from Guillaum Fabre, French native and protégé of Michel Rolland. Jeb Dunnuck labeled it “truly brilliant,” with a score to match. Limited production means these won’t last, so lock it down fast.

Jeb Dunnuck

Lots of spiced plums, orange blossom, spring flowers, peach (I'd swear there was Viognier in this blend) and peppery notes emerge from the 2018 Syrah. An exotic, full-bodied, seamless Syrah with ripe yet present tannins, no hard edges, and a great, great finish, it's truly brilliant and the finest I've tasted from this estate. All Syrah from a mix of sites on the westside of Paso Robles, brought up in 60% new oak, it's going to keep for 10-15 years.
