"The 2015 Syrah John Lewis is the most youthfully reserved but also the most incipiently complex of these offerings from Gramercy Cellars, unfurling in the glass with notes of violets, potpourri, sweet black fruits, tapenade and Egyptian musk. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, multidimensional and complete, with excellent concentration, bright balancing acids and fine-grained but youthfully chewy tannins. This will need 5 or 6 years in the cellar and continue to develop for 15 years thereafter." -Robert Parker
"All Les Collines Vineyard from blocks 36 and 46 with 100% whole cluster, the aromas stop you in your tracks, with notes of freshly chopped parsley, cured meat, potpourri, olive, violet and crushed rock. The palate is full of light tart herb and smoked-meat flavors backed by hefty tannins that need a good bit of time to resolve. It brings a sense of freshness and vibrancy, needing significant time in the cellar to be fully appreciated."
