Notes from Cream Owner Andy Pates: "It is always a treat to be offered an allocation of wines from Autour de l'Anne. Over the years these allos have been few and far between. This summer, when I saw all the wines and quantities available from the great 2020 vintage, I got excited and went a little bit crazy. For the first time since working with Zev, we bought a mixed pallet of ANNE! Insane.

I continue to be very pleased with the 2020 vintage in France, especially among the natural vigneron. Not sure if it was purely the weather or perhaps everyone being home and spending more time in their vineyards. Whatever the reason producer after producer, wine after wine from this notorious year seem to be more bountiful, generous, fresh, lively and energetic." - ASP

Tasting Notes: This is a Syrah for sweater weather, offering a liquid hug. Fresh, floral, and fragrant aromatics convert to a rich and comforting middle with a lifted, long deft finish.
