The estate’s limited production release, the 2011 Crozes Hermitage Cuvee Gaby is 100% Syrah that spent 13 months in 20% new French oak. Locked and loaded with notions of black raspberry, smoked meats, game and black olive, this serious effort hits the palate with a silky, seamless texture, solid concentration and superb purity of fruit. It is a knockout Crozes Hermitage that should continue to shine for a decade or more.
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023
