Wine Description

Very pure, with superracy red cherry, raspberry and violet notes that stretch out through the lengthy, graphite-filled finish. There's lovely, integrated acidity. Delicious.

    #89 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009 A blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache. The color is a deep ruby with a purple edge. The syrah grape shows on the nose, with red fruit, black cherry and licorice. On the palate this combines power with elegance/ with its velvety, fleshy texture. The finish shows the lift typical of the cooler parts of the Rhône valley. critical acclaim: "Very pure, with superracy red cherry, raspberry and violet notes that stretch out through the lengthy, graphite-filled finish. There's lovely, integrated acidity. Delicious. Drink now through 2011. " 91 Points Wine Spectator "Another equal part blend of Syrah and Grenache is the 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Vinsobres Les Cornuds, also from estate vineyards planted in limestone soils. The freshness of the vintage is well-displayed along with bracing acidity that buttresses substantial concentration, medium to full body, and a big, blue and black fruit-scented nose revealing hints of truffles, crushed rocks, violets, and spice." 90 Points The Wine Advocate
