Bright purple. The nose displays deeply pitched, mineral-laced scents of black raspberry, cherry-cola and violet, plus a hint of star anise. Then rich but surprisingly lively in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry liqueur flavors accented by exotic floral pastilles and gingerbread. Lush and creamy on the strikingly long finish, which features suave spicecake and raspberry notes.

Also decadent and voluptuous, the 2012 Ermitage Le Meal is the sexiest and most textured of the lineup. Exhibiting gorgeous black raspberry, cassis, chocolate, roasted meats and liquid smoke, it is a full-bodied, incredibly layered and pure Syrah that has masses of tannin, yet no hard edges. It too will have two to three decades of longevity.
