Paul Jaboulet Ainé Hermitage 'La Chapelle' 2006 Review

Hold on. Brace yourself. Maybe sit down. Now breathe in this wine, and get ready. If you haven’t had wines from here, know that this is one of the purest expressions of the Syrah grape on earth. It’s where this grape lives its best life. Welcome to rosemary and tarragon. Say hello to a subtle hint of smoked bacon and herbed raw meat. Get to know the mouthfeel that carries all of these aromas to the palate on a savory, crushed velvet cushion of a fruit core. This wine will be with you long after it’s gone. This wine floors me.
