Winemaker Notes

The color is deep red, almost inky. Red fruit aromas abound, as well as blackberries, black currants and hints of tobacco. The wine has a rich, concentrated and spicy taste; persistent red fruit and licorice add elegance tothe structure. This wine will benefit from two to three years' cellaring.

Pairs well with all game and red meats.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Although this comes off younger vines than the Louvee, this 2008 is remarkably impressive right now. Although it's hugely extracted, a deep pool of black, plummy juice, it's also shapely, traced by ferrous minerality and firmed with powerful tannins. It comes off chewy and supple, spicy and smooth, a fascinating - and deilcious - exercise in contradictions.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Ripe, pure and driven, with brisk raspberry, red cherry and red currant fruit laced with iron and maduro tobacco notes. The long, fine-grained finish has a lingering chalky hint. Drink now through 2016.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is Colombo's entry-level Cornas in the U.S., and is a more-than-solid effort from a challenging vintage. Beefy aromas lead the way, with hints of espresso and black olive, adding some cassis and blueberry fruit. This is amply concentrated and firm, with a dusty, lingering finish. Drink 2013-2020.

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.”
