Michel & Stephane Ogier Syrah La Rosine 2012

La Rosine is a bottling of pure Syrah from vineyards located between Cote Rotie and Condrieu, and averaging 15 years in age. The wine is vinified in new, one and two year-old barrels. The La Rosine displays the classic Cote Rotie aromas and flavors of smoked meats, ripe plums and spice. This is an awesome entry-level wine from the northern Rhone, and is less than half the price of good Cote Rotie. [+]
