What experts says    
   
87 "The 2013 Crozes Hermitage is a meaty, olive-scented, slightly earthy effort that has a good core of black raspberry and blackberry fruit. Possessing solid depth of fruit and a supple, rounded textured, it's a charming and flavorful Syrah that's best consumed over the coming 4-5 years."
