Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
94 Points

"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."
91 Points

"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. "
90 Points

(core-NAHS) Talk about potential... the appellation of Cornas is lesser-known than its northern counterparts, but has the ability to make delicious, hearty, long-lasting wines. The hills of Cornas are steep and hug the Rhone river, as many Northern Rhone appellations do. Cornas is typically best when aged for up to 10 years, although pioneer winemakers, like Jean-Luc Columbo...
