Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($96) Bright ruby. Strikingly fresh aromas of red berries, kirsch, incense and cured meat; turned even brighter with air, emphasizing raspberry and blackberry. Supple strawberry and raspberry flavors betray no rough edges and gain a compelling spiciness on the long, sappy finish. Wonderfully spherical for Cornas.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2005 Cornas reveals fabulous aromas of acacia flowers, scorched earth, blackberries, dense cherries, and damp forest floor. Full-bodied with high tannin, but equally high extraction and richness, patience will be required for purchasers of this superb Cornas.

Fruit driven, but animal notes emerging with air. Acidity and tannins suggest this should develop very good in bottle but very much attractive already.

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
