2006  La Côte Rousse, Syrah

While made from a single variety, Syrah La Côte Rousse represents the “yang” to La Serenne’s “yin”. It’s made from four different clones from two different vineyards, Ciel du Cheval and Scott Williams. This mix of sites and clones endows it with a layered complexity and extraordinary dimension. Yet it’s the overall appellation that ultimately drives this wine: exclusively from Red Mountain fruit, La Côte Rousse reflects the power and muscle of this warmer site. Black red in the glass, and deeply scented with black fruits, spice, black pepper, minerals and smoked meats, it presents a full spectrum of aromatic and palate impressions. While more powerful, this is the most integrated vintage yet of La Côte Rousse, with a juicy sweetness and suppleness.
