Clairmont 2017 Domaine Defrance Le Chemin (Crozes-Hermitage)

Rich layers of dark chocolate and vanilla penetrate from nose to palate in this lavishly ripe Syrah matured 12 months in French oak. Black cherry and cassis flavors are bold and juicy on the palate but balanced by a zippy acidic backbone and fine, chalky tannins. It's a wine that's welcoming in its youth but should drink at peak through 2025. Anna Lee C. Iijima
