Vidal-Fleury 2017 Hermitage

Blackberry and elderberry notes are concentrated but restrained in this classically earthen, salt-edged Syrah. Accented by a whiff of violet and fur, it's a shyer expression of Hermitage than is typical in these increasingly hot, sun-drenched vintages, but one that would welcome a few more years to let its subtleties develop. It's best to wait till 2023. The wine should improve through at least 2030 and hold further. Anna Lee C. Iijima
