Probably a bit past peak, but still deep, vibrant and peppery.

Pretty and clean, cooked black and bluefruits, cocoa, vanilla and baking spice, leather. Supple for Cornas, oak is prevalent and starting to integrate.

Apple core attack. allspice, coriander seed finish. Melted dark chocolate richness with moderate sediment. Peculiar bivalve brininess emerges towards the end of the night.

Unfiltered, coarse mouthfeel in a good way, started light and opened up peppery and smooth. Give it time in decanter. Earthy.

Deep garnet color with pronounced primary aromas of jammy black fruits and violets and strangely enough elderflower, secondary aromas of black truffles and smoke and savoury, meaty tertiary aromas. True #syrah #benchmarkwine long finish #cornas
