Paul Jaboulet Crozes Hermitage “Domaine de Thalabert” 2016 Rhone Valley, France
The 2016 Crozes is another stunning vintage on the heals of the stellar 2015. The wine shows notes of dark fruit, leather, spice, and tapenade. There’s good concentration and nice texture. This is definitely not a fruity Syrah, this one is more on the chewy side.
Pair with grilled meats, roasts, and heavier pastas.
