The opaque black/purple-tinged 2011 Ermitage l'Ermite offers a combination of crushed stones creme de cassis blackberry liqueur barbecue smoke and roasted meats.

It may turn out to be a 30-50-year wine in a vintage that made relatively forward wines. In that sense it is an outlier in this vintage. -Robert Parker
