RATINGS

97Jeb Dunnuck

...complex notes of campfire and liquid rock, as well as loads of black raspberry, toasted spice and leather. Gorgeously pure, layered and sexy, with perfect balance...

95The Wine Advocate

...notes of crushed stone, rare/bloody beef, blueberries and black olives. It's full-bodied and richly textured, with an almost creamy mouthfeel and a long, velvety finish.

93Wine Spectator

Bursting with enticing raspberry, plum and blackberry coulis flavors, this is racy and long, carried by bright mineral and light chalk notes. Lovely floral and anise accents thread through the finish, with a flash of bay leaf at the very end.

93Vinous / IWC

...highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and blueberry, and notes of candied flowers, incense and smoky Indian spices build in the glass. Sappy and expressive on the palate, offering intense dark berry and violet flavors that are lifted by a snap of juicy acidity. Shows excellent focus and spicy thrust on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with strong, floral-driven tenacity.

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.
