Professional Wine Reviews for Marc Sorrel Hermitage Le Greal 2006

Rated 94 by Decanter
Glass-staining ruby. Hypnotic, explosive bouquet of black and blue fruits, cola, anise, violet and minerals. Weighty but almost shockingly lithe, with precise mulberry and boysenberry flavors and strong mineral and candied floral character. Becomes even sweeter on the finish, leaving strong floral and blue fruit notes in its wake. (Galloni)

Winery: Marc Sorrel

Varietal: Syrah

Known as Syrah in most countries around the world, and Shiraz in Australia and certain other regions of the New World, this grape varietal has proven over the centuries to be one of the most powerful and flavorful red wine grapes there is. It is now one of the planet's most widely grown grapes, and is a favorite with wineries as a result of its robustness and versatility. It isn't easy to identify many characteristics of this particular varietal, due to the fact that it is highly versatile and shows significant differences in flavor and character depending on the terroir it is grown in, and the climatic conditions of the region. However, Syrah is most widely associated with full bodied, strong and loud red wines, packed full of fruity and spicy flavors, held in a beautifully deep red liquid.
