Drank at Bottles in Paris with Sarah and Brice Garrett from Serrano Wines in Paso Robles.

Dark ruby red. Dark nose with some floral notes, dark berries, and a little savory. Medium plus (6.5/10) and full bodied. Some herbs on the palate, savory, leather and dark raspberries. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2027. (91+)

Beautiful turn since I last opened a bottle. Reduction has given way to a pretty, dark and rustic freshness

Burgundy meets Cornas, missing some of that ferral, peppery, campfire ash I prefer, but what it lacked made up for in elegance, fruit and polished structure.

Classique and a bit rustique. Bloody and elegant.

Luscious, refined. Not what I expected from "rustic" Cornas.
