Deep red in color, almost inky. The bouquet exudes red fruit, blackberries, black currants and hints of tobacco. The palate is rich, concentrated and spicy; persistent aromas of red fruit and licorice add elegance to the structure.
Pairs well with all game and red meats.
"Seriously taut, with a chalky spine that drives through layers of
raspberry, black cherry and black currant fruit. A note of singed
apple wood frames the finish. A bit backward, but displays lovely
cut and persistence, exhibiting ample concentration for the cellar."
"Inky ruby. Exotic aromas and flavors of dark berry liqueur, allspice and candied flowers. Sappy, penetrating and energetic, with silky texture and a touch of brighter red fruits on the back end. Tannins come on late and add grip to a long, subtly smoky finish."
International Wine Cellar
"Colombo's entry-level Cornas is a reliable bottling whose high quality reflects the impact of the 2010 vintage. It's full bodied and richly textured, with notes of tar, espresso and tapenade that linger through the velvety finish. "
