Intensely Flavored, with green olive flavors overlaying big, black fruit. Great acidity. A big mouthful, will pair well with beef or lamb, and you won't have to be shy with the spices.

The 2011 Crozes-Hermitage is lighter and more fruit-forward than the denser, more structured 2010 Crozes-Hermitage. The 2011 is also more charming and drinkable even though the 2010 may last longer. Drink the 2011 over the next 4-5 years.
