Winemaker's Notes

The color is a deep ruby with a purple edge. The Syrah grape shows on the nose, with red fruit, black cherry and licorice. On the palate, this combines power with elegance with its velvety, fleshy texture. The finish shows the lift typical of the cooler parts of the Rhône valley.

Serve with lightly seasoned food.

Critical Acclaim

"A ripe, rich and racy Rhône red, with an ample core of black currant, fig paste, hoisin sauce and graphite flavors backed by dark coffee, mesquite and mineral notes on the long, structured finish. Impressive. Drink now through 2011. 5,000 cases made."
91 Points

"The 2006 Perrin et Fils Vinsobres Les Cornuds has the beautiful freshness and liveliness that comes from higher elevation and cooler climate vineyards in the northern part of the southern Rhone. The wine is equal parts Syrah and Grenache, and reveals complex berry notes in the nose along with truffle, roasted herbs, incense, and spice. It is medium-bodied, pure, elegant, and very Burgundian-like. In fact, I would love to see this wine inserted in a tasting with premier cru and grand cru red Burgundies. It is that transparent and terroir-based."

Learn About Rhone Red Blends
