2003 domaine courbis cornas la sabarotte
"The black-colored 2003 Cornas La Sabarotte may turn out to be one of the candidates for the Cornas of the vintage. A wine of remarkable intensity and richness, yet seamlessly put together, this full-bodied, superbly concentrated 2003 possesses amazing levels of smoky creme de cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with new saddle leather, truffles, and iron shavings. This distinctive, textured, full-throttle Cornas should prove to be a wine for the ages. It should drink well young, yet last for 15-20 years or longer."
