Composition: 100% Syrah.
Notes: Dark rocky nose of mineral, violet, and dark plum and raspberry. Flinty fruit in the mouth... a nice combination of rocks and fruit, with soft tannins. Not much of a tarry quality at the finish normal to Syrah, but some slight bitterness and some persistent graphite-like flavor. Very nice overall, although I think I prefer the Les Genets (I did pick up another bottle, finally, and had it the other night, so now I need another one already!). I really like Domaine la Bastide, though, from these wines I've had, and for the price the wines are pretty amazing.
