RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

...vibrant core of raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit, backed by mouthwatering iron and white pepper notes, pulling together on the bay and lavender-lined finish.

90The Wine Advocate

Sexy, open knit, broad and expansive, with classic notes of currants, raspberries, spice-box and tobacco leaf...medium to full-bodied, supple and polished, with beautiful purity of fruit and ripe, sweet tannin.

18Jancis Robinson

Very rich black fruit with generous vanilla spice on the palate. Impressively lengthy and modern, with superb clarity of fruit. Such is its intensity of fruit and oak... Extremely good.

REGION

France, Rhône Valley, Northern Rhône, Cornas

The Northern Rhône Valley wine region hugs the Rhône River from Vienne in the north to Valence at its southern tip. The French call the region Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales, and it is divided into eight appellations. Along with its neighbor to the south, the Southern Rhone Valley, it is famous for its big, tannic, intensely concentrated wines. Syrah is the only red grape permitted in AOC wines from this sub-region, though the Syrah can be blended with the white wine grapes Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne, depending on the regulations for each AOC. White wines are made from Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. Of the eight appellations in the north, the most admired wines tend to come from Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Hermitage, though there are certainly exceptional wines to be found in St. Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, St.-Peray, Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas. Along with Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, Rhône wines are among France’s best known and most collected wines. Red wines from these appellations are notable for their signature aromas of bacon and green olives, and for their depth. Robert M. Parker, a great champion of Rhone wines, has written that “the northern Rhône produces three of the greatest wines in the world – the white wines of Condrieu and the red wines of Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
