TASTING NOTES

"Coming from a steep granite hillside near the village of Tupin-et-Semons, just on the outskirts of Côte Rôtie, the 2012 La Rosine Syrah VDP is 100% Syrah that was brought up in mostly older barrels. It’s a beautiful wine that, unsurprisingly, bares more than a passing resemblance to a high-quality Côte Rôtie from the southern part of the appellation. Sweet raspberry, licorice, spice and crushed rock-like qualities flow nicely to a medium-bodied, sexy, supple 2012 that has outstanding purity of fruit and a terrific finish. It’s hard to resist now, but I’ve no doubt it will evolve gracefully for upward of a decade." Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #216

"The brambly core of damson plum and black cherry fruit is studded with dried star anise and tobacco hints. Small in scale but pleasantly energetic. Drink now through 2015. 2,650 cases made." Wine Spectator
