"Big wine with impressively intense fruit but beautifully structured with a silken texture. Lots of flavors happening here with layers and layers of ripe berry, spice and subtle floral and savoury notes. This is the best Le Sol yet. (no Viognier - "it dilutes the wine's character")."

"The 2009 edition of Le Sol syrah is a far less overt, flashy wine than some of the releases of the past. It's tight and controlled with flashes of white peppery spice amid blueberried and black cherry-like fruit flavour. There's a clip of cedary, smoky, meaty oak and excellent extension through the finish. It's class personified. Has fruit and oak sweetness " there's a violetty brightness to this " but it winks confidently at spicy-savouriness too. Complete red wine."
