The aromas of this wine are perfumed with violets and full of ripe cherry and dark berries, and in the mouth there is a hint of pepper and baking spice. Silky and floral with fresh acidity and power. The finish is minerally and precise, with just a hint

This is a fresh, full, and vibrant Syrah from the Saint-Joseph appellation of France's Northern Rhone. Vines here have an average age of 25-years, and grown on pebbly, granitic soil. Vineyards are located near the village of Limony, in the northern part of the appellation at 300 meters in elevation, overlooking the Rhône river. This is a Certified organic estate.

The 2015 vintage was de-stemmed, with a portion of the stems were added back to add a bit of extra freshness. Natural yeast fermentation occurred in cement tanks. The resulting wine was then aged for 10 months in 3- to 5-year-old Burgundy barrels.

The aromas of this wine are perfumed with violets and full of ripe cherry and dark berries, and in the mouth there is a hint of pepper and baking spice. Silky and floral with fresh acidity and power.  The finish is minerally and precise, with just a hint of dusty tannins adding form and gentle grip.
