Trouver l’Arene 2015 Sine Qua Non

A brutal fruit, a 100 point wine, I enjoy to taste them but at the end of the day they lack true balance are mostly fruit driven.

The 2015 Syrah Trouver l’Arene is a sensational barrel sample made from 80.5% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah, 7% Mourvèdre and the balance of Viognier and Grenache. It saw less whole cluster than normal (which was common in the vintage due to the tiny yields) and was fermented with 34% whole clusters and will spend 22 months in close to equal parts new and used French oak. Blackberries, violets, white chocolate and peppery spice all give way to a big, full-bodied, gorgeously sexy Syrah that has way more fruit and texture than most in this vintage. (source internet)
