Domaine Clape Cornas. Wow. Like smoking a cigar. Tobacco like I've never smelled or tasted. Might need to open up some fruit over time...

A little soft but still pretty. Not his best showing.

Solid bottle here. Still very reserved but the weight is felt in the mouth. Great nose all flavors in harmony just needs time.

I frequently tell wine drinkers who boldly proclaim that they just don't like Syrah, that they need to try an older vintage from the Northern Rhone before they make that declaration. After enjoying this Clape Cornas tonight, I stand by my claim.

Super polished and clean. Beautiful fruit, but somehow the whole package seems less compelling and had less complexity than I was looking for. @Delectable Wine , it's the Clape.

Clape crushed the lamb stew we paired it with. One of my favorite meals of the year. And views overlooking Mono Lake for the knockout punch
