Clusel-Roch's Serine Rouge is made by Guillaume Clusel from plantings of the old Syrah clone, Serine, just outside of Cote Rotie. It's made with a light touch and has all the classic Northern Rhone goodness (intense fruit, deeper notes of olive, pepper, meat) but in a seamless, totally accessible form.
But Guillaume hardly makes any wine so don't wait to click through here and grab a bottle (or more!) to try.
"Vibrant dark fruit scents show fine delineation and take on olive, cracked pepper, smoked meat and floral qualities with air. Appealingly sweet and seamless in texture, offering intense black raspberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Silky tannins build on a very long, lively finish that echoes the floral and dark fruit notes."

That perfect purple syrah fruit. In an area whose best wines need age, it's nice to have a bottle like this that's ready to pop and pour. All my favorite Northern Rhône notes are here: dark berries, pepper, and a refreshing minerality.
