Clos Solène Hommage à Nos Pairs Reserve 2018

  • “The 2018 Hommage A Nos Pairs Reserve is another Syrah-dominated cuvée that has 3% Viognier and 2% Grenache. Cassis, black raspberries, ground pepper, and violet notes all emerge on the nose, and it’s full-bodied, with an incredible mid-palate, flawlessly integrated tannins and acidity, and a great, great finish. It’s a heavenly Syrah from Paso Robles that’s going to deliver the goods for 10-15 years."
