    ($52; from Verset's second bottling, in September of this year) Good medium ruby. Spicy aromas of black fruits, game, leather and tapenade. Tightly wound and penetrating, with complex, distinctly wild flavors of blackberry, black olive, leather, roasted meat and minerals. A wine of noble rusticity, projecting a great range of soil tones and inner-mouth aromas. Tight finish features a note of leather. This is remarkably showy considering the recent bottling.

    The 1999 Cornas, which showed good potential from barrel, has an intriguing blueberry/floral/leather-scented nose. But it has a problem. Its chalky, astringent, hard tannin mars an otherwise interesting wine. Tannin in Cornas rarely melts away completely, but this 1999 starts off with excessive tannin. Moreover, once the fruit begins to fade in 5-6 years, the tannin will be even more brutal.
