Luca Syrah Laborde Double Select 2009

90 points, Stephen Tanzer

Serious deep red. Blackberry, licorice, molten chocolate and smoky oak on the nose. Smooth, lush, rich and sweet, with palate-saturating flavors of dark raspberry, cocoa powder, violet, bitter chocolate, flowers and herbs. This really fills the mouth on the round, suavely tannic finish. A fairly convincing syrah from cuttings that came from the northern and southern Rhone and are now about 40 years old.
