Like @Lyle Fass said, completely insane! Absolutely perfect nose. Palate is not far behind. Blown away.

2016 vintage. Bay leaf, smoke, garrigue. Meaty and delicious.

The new kid on the block. Wow. What a nose. Stunning. Sick. The whole cluster and no new wood shows. Smells like classic stuff. Blackberry, cassis, smoke, leather, blueberry, big berry, lavender, so so floral, really really pungent and detailed. Mint, brown sugar and shows ripeness but also insane complexity. Palate is at once round and exhibits huge finesse but also shows super ripe fruit and stunning purity. Superb refinement and precision. This is so beautiful. Such fine tannins. This has the extra that makes it a top Cornas.

Huge purple fruits. Amazing blueberries as well and so much wild mint and an indescribable sweetness. Tree bark, cinnamon and other spices. Gamey with super complex herbs and just unreal depth. The wild mint on the nose is profound. Super profound. A 9.8 nose. Sickness. Just what one wants. Palate is so fresh. Beguilingly fresh and has lovely blackberry sweetness and that whole cluster adds complexity but also masks some of the lush ripe fruit now. Long finish and also closed to begin. Terrific fruit when one is swishing and the elegance starts to show but the tannins are grippy and show whole cluster character which adds complexity now but takes away fruit character now but the fruit will come in the future. Great concentration and depth. This is obviously great and not subtle like Sozet or Fauterie. But this also has a clipped finish. I think 2 hours in a decanter will cure what ails this the length is there.

Full of Cornasness: Olive tapenade, garrigue, violets, smoke, earth. There’s some black fruit in there if you dig real deep. Delightful now, but I predict the texture will improve with time as tannins soften and broaden. Great wine with a label so terrible it’s endearing.

Purple hue with ruby rim variation. Moderate tearing. Nose is clean and offers black and red fruit, such as cassis, blackberry, plum, black cherry, raspberry, also violets, leather, animal, game, delicate smoke, earth, mushroom, tobacco leaf, pencil shavings, nutmeg, vanilla, and anise spice. Dried herbs, tart black fruit, and medium- tannins on the palate. Nice acidity.

Excellent Northern Rhône, 💯 Syrah. Robust flavors, full bodied, and yet great acidity for food pairing. Nice complement to grilled ribeye 🥩 with a rosemary and garlic rub, roasted asparagus and potatoes. ABV 13%. Vintage 2016.
