REVIEW: Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2007

October 27th, 2009 by Jeff

Price:

~$28

Region:

Rhône Valley, France

Nose:

Vibrant blackberry, red licorice, caramel, spice and vanilla.

Palate:

Full bodies with fresh acidity and smooth, round tannins.  Loosely knit and approachable for sure.  The blackberry from the nose follows through in the mouth along with tar plum and a long chewy finish that features more of that lovely blackberry jam, earth and minerals.

Synopsis:

Here we have a 100% Syrah from the Northern Rhone.  If you had not heard, 2007 is a fantastic vintage for the entire Rhone Valley and especially for the north.  That’s my buying tip for the day:

If you see 2007 Rhone wines, buy them.

The Som Rating: 9/10 Scarlett Johansson Heads
