Inky black in color. Complex aromas with both floral and fruity notes. Flavors of black fruit, black currants and herbs dominate, accented by a touch of vanilla. A solid, concentrated wine that will continue to evolve for at least two decades.
Pairs perfectly with steak and most game meats.
"Very ripe, with lush plum sauce, blackberry confiture and linzer torte flavors all rolled together, with additional sweet tobacco, macerated olive and white pepper notes cutting through the finish. A long sanguine edge lingers. Shows great range and intensity. Best from 2013 through 2021."
"Firmly in the style of the vintage, this is dense, full bodied Cornas, with plenty of fruit. Intense plum, coffee and black olive notes dominate, while the tannins are ripe and plush. Believe it or not, this is actually drinkable now, yet should age easily through at least 2025. "
"Bright purple. Cherry-vanilla, cola and dark berry compote on the nose. Supple and alluringly sweet, with deep black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and slow-mounting spiciness. The cola and vanilla notes resonate on the long, smooth, energetic finish. I find this wine surprisingly approachable but it clearly has the depth to age."
