A small step back from the stunning 2012, the 2013 Hommage A Nos Pairs Reserve is a Syrah-dominated cuvee that includes 4% Grenache and 2% Roussanne. Fermented and aged 17 months in 65% new French oak, this glass-stainer offers awesome notes of creme de cassis, crushed violets, peppered meat and licorice in a full-bodied, ripe, rich, polished and perfectly balanced profile. Never over the top or clumsy in anyway, with a full mid-palate and fine tannin, it's offers immense pleasure today (like all of Guillaume's wines) yet will age gracefully on its balance, purity and concentration.

Dark purple. Powerful, deeply pitched black and blue fruit aromas are accented by allspice, vanilla and violet. Sweet, broad and concentrated, offering intense boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors and a sexy floral nuance. Fine-grained tannins build very slowly on the finish, which clings with superb tenacity and resonating floral character.

An extremely dark wine, with purple bubbles, this blend of 94% Syrah, 4% Grenache and 2% Roussanne expresses the essence of dark, extracted fruit all around. The nose shows blackberry puree, fresh lilacs, lava rocks and background pepper and vanilla. The palate is rich with espresso bean, violets, lavender and dried blueberries, lifted by minty herbs and peppery spice.
