Dark tawny. Mostly opaque. Quiet nose. Modest notes of black fruit, some iron, some pepper. Lacking the punch you want. Tasted over several hours and never shed it’s quiet nature. Drink up.

Red scarlet, bright and clear. Not showing much age yet in the glass. Mineral and bright fruit nose. Notes of black cherry, slate stone, black earthy soil, raspberries and a little menthol. Even with two hours of air in a decanter this is young and chewy in the mouth. Lots of structure and acidity that overpowers the fruit. I’m curious to see where this goes in the next 5 years.

Dark scarlet center with clear rims. Almost opaque. Wonderful fragrant nose. Notes of blue fruit, earth, violets, minerals, and some menthol. Meaty. Velvet glove in the mouth. Soft rich fruit with a nice balance of acidity that prolongs the finish. Was open for business immediately. RIP Mr Clape and thank you for this.

1998 Clape Cornas. I believe the most aged Clape I've ever had. Soft, steemy, and a mind boggle for Syrah.
