Alain Graillot, Crozes Hermitage 2014, Rhône, France
Tasting Note: A fresh blackberry and tannin surprise.
Medium purple intensity in color this syrah has an aromatic nose of purple fruit with savory notes of black pepper, violet, meat, game, green olive and black cherry.
On the palate the medium-plus bodied wine is medium-plus in grape tannin.
There are also flavors of leather, black raspberry and black cherry.
