A Syrah That Will Bring You Back

If you have recently moved away from Syrah after many disappointments, this is the one wine that ought to bring you back. Domaine Durand is from two brothers, Eric and Joël, whose vineyards lie in France’s Northern Rhône, home of the greatest Syrahs the world has ever seen. The Durands own vineyards in Cornas and St. Joseph, two of Northern Rhône’s choicest sites and their recently released 2010 Syrah is perhaps their finest yet. A blend of younger vines from the estate vineyards, it offers an explosion of flavors which seduce and caress the palate without overpowering it. Black raspberries, anise, bacon come to mind . . . along with a finish that lingers on and on. By far our best-value Syrah.
