Gamey, smokey, brambly fruit with soft tannin... it transports me.... Perfect with some earthy caviar lentils 🙌🏾

This wine seems so much younger than it is(2011) still in between red and purple rim deep boysenberry fruit, cured meat , rosemary flowers - very big tannins

Intense dark fruit, blood, and meat. Still grippy and not completely shed of youth. Wish this was opened five years from now.

I'd say this leans on the more delicate side of Cornas, if there is such a thing. Firm and tannic, but there's a finesse here that seems to contrast a bit from the typical brute force of a lot of stuff from Cornas.
