Decanter Tasting notes on this wine:-

"Dark nose of liquorice-spiced fruit with savoury touches of pepper and tar.A green backbone and ripe,chewy tannins bring structure nto the silky palate.Medium-bodied and showing good intensity.Drinking now".

"Classic Syrah nose with perfumed fresh berry fruit underscored by rich notes of pepper and roasted meats.The alluringly supple and persistent palate offers a ripe fruit core delicately enrobed in soft tannins.Delicious Syrah silkiness.Drink 2016-2018".
(91 Points).

Decanter Magazine. (July 2016).

"A dazzling 2013 made exclusively from the Syrah grape.I was bowled over by its beguiling bouquet - all brooding,perfumed,bramble and black pepper spice - that will go down a treat wit BBQ'd steak and ribs".

Jane MacQuitty. (Tasting note on the 2013 Crozes-Hermitage Cave de Tain in the Times Top 100 Wines. June 2016).
