About

91

Sporting a deep inky color, the 2014 Cornas (100% Syrah aged in three- to four-year-old barrels) is a supple, sexy 2014 that has terrific, complex notes of liquid blackberries, currants, scorched earth, peppered meat and wild herbs. Rich, textured and on the fuller side of medium-bodied, it has supple, ripe tannin, a focused and fresh style, as well as a great finish. Buy a case of this beauty and drink it over the coming decade.

Opaque ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and blueberry preserves, olive and smoky minerals, enhanced by a peppery topnote. At once rich and lively, offering palate-staining dark berry and cherry cola flavors and intense back-end florality. Finishes spicy and very long, with impressive energy, subtle tannins and lingering spiciness.
