Syrah requires a warm climate to fully ripen but enough moderating effect to produce intense, aromatic wines that are not overwhelmed by sweetness and alcohol. This Syrah grows in ideal terroirs of the southern Rhône and shows the varietal's typical spicy notes of sandalwood, violets, and black pepper. Syrah, with its deep flavors and firm tannins, is a natural match for grilled or smoked meat and dishes featuring herbs, roasted mushrooms, and onions. Seared venison or beef with black pepper and thyme or a Moroccan tagine of pigeon or chicken are complimented by the spicy characteristic of Syrah.

Starting out the reds, this estate makes a terrific Côtes Du Rhône that's produced in solid quantities. The 2018 Côtes Du Rhône, which has already been bottled, is a no-brainer for a house red and offers lots of peppery dark fruits and herbal notes, medium body, good freshness and purity, and just tons of upfront charm. It's mostly Syrah and ideal for near-term drinking.
