Winemaker Notes

A superb and deep ruby color. Powerful, richness, and complexity. Notes of black fruit and liquorice but also "garrigue" and minerality. Harmonious, elegant and concentrated flavors of blackcurrant, fig compote and violets. A very well balanced wine, with good structure and a lingering finish of cloves and spice.

Excellent with beef, wild duck, game, lamb, truffle dishes, stews and hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator
Bramble, tobacco, sweet tapenade and charcoal notes lead the way in this muscular, mineral-driven red, offering a core of steeped black currant, blueberry paste, plum sauce and bitter cherry notes that should meld nicely with the grip over time. A steely, chalky edge emerges steadily through the finish.
TP 93
Tasting Panel
Spicy nose; silky texture and bright blackberry, cassis and raspberry fruit; notes of violets and chocolate with vivid fruit, tangy acidity and a long, elegant finish, built to age.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Cornas the Dominatrix: From a vineyard of syrah vines up to 70 years old, this is at once lush and hard as nails, the satin-textured fruit lashed to the tongue with oak tannins and stony minerality. It's impressively structured and gorgeously fragrant...
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is cool and restrained, with peppery flourishes layered over raspberry fruit. Rather than being massive or intense, it's medium bodied, perfumed and elegant, with hints of dusty tannins that build slowly on the finish. It's approachable now, but should age well through at least 2023.

Innovation, passion and dedication are what drive Jean-Luc and Anne Colombo, whose contributions to Rhône Valley winemaking has remained unparalleled since 1984. Colombo’s innovative approach in the northern appellation of Cornas was nothing short of revolutionary; his expressive, character-driven wines have helped breath new life into this highly prestigious and acclaimed appellation.

Jean-Luc, Anne and their daughter Laure, now head winemaker, continue to ensure the production of fine wines of typicity from major appellations of the Rhône Valley, as well as the Languedoc and Provence, while maintaining sustainable farming practices.

Distinguished as a fine Syrah producing zone since the 18th century, Cornas, like Cote Rotie, is made up of vineyards covering steep and hard-to-work, granite terraces. As a result the region’s wines fell out of favor during the mid 20th century when the global market was more focused on bulk wines and vineyards that yielded high quantities. It wasn’t until the 1980s when a group of energetic young winemakers reestablished the integrity of these precipitous terraces and also began making an ultra-modern style of Syrah. The new style didn’t need a decade before it was drinkable and could reach the consumer faster than the region’s traditional wines. Given the new quality coming out of the zone, its popularity once again soared and today a good Cornas can easily challenge many of those from Hermitage. Characteristics of Syrah from Cornas include teeth-staining flavors of blackberry jam, plum, pepper, violets, smoked game, charcoal, chalk dust and smoke.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
