The 2016 Hermitage Monier de La Sizeranne checks in as 100% Syrah that's from a multitude of terroirs on Hermitage, and it spent 16 months in 25% new French oak. It's the finest vintage of this cuvée I can remember and offers sensational notes of currants, blackberries, smoked earth, new saddle leather, and graphite. Just a classic Hermitage, with sweet tannins, a rounded, sumptuous texture, and a serious core of fruit, don't miss this beauty! It’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and have 2-3 decades of prime drinking.
