Ripe, spicy, robust, smooth and rich, some minerality, a bit flabby but decent. Not sure I would have paid the $45 for this syrah when plenty of other Northern Rhones have more character than this for half the price. However it's not bad, just not good.

$45? Gimme a break!

Read my blog entry about cult wines in China--and send Planeta over there, too.

Thomas, I agree. all of us at the table looked at the bottle and pretty much said "why???"
