Cornas Syrah 2017

Fun, clean with plenty of fruit. In other words, not very Cornas-y. — 2 months ago

Saint Peray Marsanne Roussanne 2006

2006 Ooka St peray so very different from the 2004, funky all right but almost like residual sugar? — 6 years ago

Syrah 2015

Atypical St. Joseph from Hirotake Ooka. Savage, high toned florals with fruits more in the red and blue spectrum, higher acid and less extraction than typical. Threw off sediment; needs decanting. Quite a bit of va but it works with the strong rose petal and sappy, brambly qualities apparent on the nose and palate. Some clove and a subtle hint of meat char. Similar to Souhaut, more floral than savory, though missing that classical balance. Far out on the natural side of the spectrum; but pretty. — 2 months ago

@Lyle Fass Jesus no. The $70 syrah tops my budget.
