Drinking nicely. Shows plums, black pepper, licorice, with bittersweet chocolate at the end.

Wow. This is so nice. A very classic Syrah nose. Beautiful tannins complemented by the acidity.

This is a nice wine to say the least. Very aromatic, with great smooth tannins. Earthy and meaty on the palate in a great way. Really quite nice

Dark purple, black fruit, stronger body but still smooth and light for how strong it is. Delicious!

Gordon's tasting 9/20/16. '12 even more open and more mature floral character and deep mineral character vs '13 but both are outstanding! Tannin prominent but almost silky. Graceful. Old la petit syrah strain not a modern clone. Very small berries and tightly packed clusters. 30 months fermentation not destemmed.

Superb. Deep saturating black fruit, olives, and granite. Even more expressive the next day. Top-notch, classic Cornas. More polished and civilized than, say, Juge or Verset, but still sinewy with a lot of tightly packed power.
