04 Domaine Combier, Crozes-Hermitage

Imagine walking through a garden of violets after eating a pancetta, ricotta, lemon zest, and olivada panini--fingers damp with brine and oil. Add to that the smell of hand-spun silk saris and you have this ambitious declaration of fruit-forward Northern Rhone syrah. It drinks as silky as the metaphor it conjures, playful and whispy at times, while at others luxurious and refined. I could wrap myself in it.
