2012 Les Voisins Syrah, Copain
This youngster displays a cool, fine nose with notes of ripe blueberries, plums, sandalwood and bay leaves. With air it becomes more peppery and restrained. A hint of tar. Very, very good. Needs more time though. This is fine.
The taste is young, perky and gulpable with notes of a mix of blueberries and raspberries, with additional notes of warm sand, fresh meat and new leather. Medium long and nicely structured. Give this baby another 3-5 years in the cellar and it will turn out even better.
