($90) Deep, opaque black-ruby color. Seriously deep aromas of ripe cherry, Valrhona chocolate, licorice candy and iron-like raw steak. Sweet and very dense on the palate, with open-knit cherry, plum and blackberry liqueur flavors. Thick and rich on the finish, with big but harmonious tannins. |My Cornas,| says proprietor/winemaker Roman Bratasuik.

Ripe, round and plush, with explosive black cherry, blackberry and exotic spice flavors that rush across the palate like a torrent, finishing with refined tannins and tremendous length. A serious wine that needs time to settle into itself. Best from 2008 through 2020. 1,000 cases made.

The exceptionally fragrant, dark purple 2003 Syrah Moritz Vineyard boasts an extraordinary perfume of acacia flowers, blackberries, cassis, roasted meats, and subtle wood. With fabulous concentration, an expansive, savory texture, well-integrated acidity, alcohol, and wood, and a remarkable finish with plenty of sweet tannin, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years.
