Beautiful Northern Rhône-like aromas of blackberries, smoked game, bacon fat, and candied violets as well as plenty of black pepper emerge from the 2018 Costières de Nîmes Fleur De Syrah. Playing in the more medium-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a layered, elegant texture, nicely integrated acidity, and soft tannins. Enjoy this upfront, charming, beautifully balanced Syrah any time over the coming 5-6 years.

Wine Enthusiast

Pristine blackberry and plum flavors are etched by graphite in this juicy, thirst-quenching Syrah. While full bodied and intensely ripe, it's a crisply concentrated, mineral sip that finishes on fine, softly edged tannins. Best enjoyed now–2025. 

Winemaker Notes

Chock full of violet, spiced red fruits, bacon, and hints of flowers, its soft, lush palate marries a wide range of food, from barbecue to spicy international fare. Delicious and hard to put down.

Elegant and intense, this alluring nose is rich in violet, blood orange, pepper & liquorice with “garrigue” spices.

Rich and harmonious, the complexities of the aromas play out progressively. Its fresh finish with hints of red fruits and rhubarb reveals delicate and superbly ripe tannins.
