The 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Sens comes from a mix of alluvial and granite soils (mostly alluvial) and was completely destemmed and brought up all in concrete tanks. It's a classic, old-school style beauty that has plenty of ripe Syrah fruit, loads of pepper and earth herbs, medium to full-bodied richness and firm tannin. Give bottles a year or so and drink over the following decade. ... More details

Bright violet. Fresh and energetic on the nose, displaying lively blue fruit and violet scents and a suggestion of cracked pepper. Juicy and precise in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet boysenberry and cherry flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. Shows good clarity and spicy cut on the clinging finish, which is shaped by smooth tannins.
Winery
The Sens red preserves finesse and balance with notes of black berries and spices. The ample and silky mouth makes this wine very charming and accessible to the greatest number. A wine of pleasure.

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.

Region: Rhone Valley

In southern France, one of the primary wine regions responsible for the production of a fine and varied range of wines is the Rhone Valley. Split into two large sub-regions, this expansive valley benefits from micro-climates which allow the wineries to grow a vast array of fine grape varietals. The northern region is the more limited one in regards to the amount of varietals grown, focusing predominantly on raising excellent quality Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier vines for their distinctive and elegant range of wines. The southern region, on the other hand, has a beautifully Mediterranean climate, and is home to dozens of grape varietals which are used to produce white, red and rosé wines, alongside some of the most famous and widely loved blended wines in the world.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
