 Tasted by Silveradoup on 9/30/2014 & rated 94 points: Rustic, pure, and elegant. Great wine! (1740 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 4/23/2014: Well on day two its pretty darn amazing. Lots spice and rich fruit and power. (2175 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 4/22/2014: Well, there is definitely and uptake from the Granit 30. Simply more of everything, including definition, drive, and layers across the mid palate. Like the 30, incredibly youthful. Bigger is sometimes better I guess. (2071 views)
 Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 1/22/2014: Thing that catches my tongue is the great purity of fruit flavors and very violet-y nose. Beautiful stuff. Far less "jumpy" and perky than the 30, more calm and suave, if you will. (2532 views)
 Tasted by Michael Davidson on 1/21/2014: Better than the Granit 30 at this stage. Similar flavor profile - very Cornas with dark fruit, leather, and other savory elements. Fine dusty tannins at the end. Overall more elegant and integrated than the 30, which was a bit awkward at this stage. Nice syrah. (2271 views)
 Tasted by CamWheeler on 1/20/2014 & rated 91 points: Club Lunch #1 - 2014: Purple coloured. Floral, stalky, with tar and licorice. Plenty of fine tannin asserts itself on the palate, there is light sweet fruit and good potential to improve. Divided the table somewhat but I certainly liked it. (1540 views)
 Tasted by affordableCollector on 11/30/2013 & rated 87 points: red, maroon, in color. sweet, cranberry from the can, plum, dark fruit, spice, black pepper, on the nose. oak, cranberry, plum, earth, dirt, leather, on the palate. high acid, medium tannins, on this tart fruit finish. (1583 views)
 Tasted by aussie05 on 11/28/2013: Curiosity won me over here. Glad it did. Evident a balanced extraction was in mind here. Grip, a background of intense fruit. A dinner table wine, and a producer I will experiment more with in the future. Serious and in the affordable price range realm compared to many other in this quality level category. (1433 views)
 Tasted by eharkins on 11/9/2013 & rated 93 points: This will only get better, but wonderfully expressive with floral, rocky meaty dark cherry notes, similar palate while elegant has decent tannin and acidity (1409 views)
 Tasted by azzah on 7/7/2013 & rated 92 points: Purple red colour. A bit of a polarising wine, which is probably due to the fact that it is so far outside the usual bold, fruit-driven style of Aussie shiraz that most of the people tasting are familiar with.

Violets and blackberries on opening, and then with red cherries and raspberries after. Hints of pepper, meat and eucalypt too. Fine tannins and low acid make this quite soft and really approachable already - far more than I've found the last two vintages - although it will certainly benefit from same age. Sensational with some lasagne! (1835 views)
 Tasted by Biggsy on 2/13/2013 & rated 90 points: Tank sample. Quite a dense mineral nose, much more closed than the 11 Granit 30. On first taste it's big, grippy and spicy with a savoury mineral character. With a bit of time it seems silkier with blackberry fruit coming through with a floral, almost spearmint note on the finish. (2147 views)
 Tasted by pjaines on 2/11/2013: Impressive and bang on point for what you would expect for a Cornas. Iron fillings, blood, cracked pepper, black fruit and liquorice cut through with acidity. Time out of the bottle brings considerable development with grilled meat and beef stock notes. Some orange peel as well. Surprisingly approachable despite its youth. Very good, and excellent value for money. (2019 views)
 Tasted by davestenton on 2/7/2013: Vincent Paris 2011 En Primeur Tasting - Vinoteca, February 2013: Barrel sample. Masses of (fruit) tannin but no obvious oak influence. Warm, spicy finish. 2018+ (1856 views)

Northern Rhône

Guide to the wines and appellations of the Northern Rhone Valley -

The Rhône Valley/Le Vins de la Vallée du Rhône (Comité Interprofession des vins AOC Côtes et vallée du Rhône)

Regional History:
Phocaean Greeks established viticulture in the Rhone as far back as 600 BC, but until the 14th century the wines were not seen outside the region. The establishment of the Avignonese Papacy (1305-1377) brought fame to the region's wine-so much so that their Burgundian neighbors to the north banned wines from the Rhone in 1446, a measure that effectively cut off trade with England and other Northern European markets for over 200 years. Stretching southward from Lyon to just south of Avignon, the Rhone produces a wide variety of wines, with the appellations north of Valence producing the least (in volume), and the towns south of Montelimar producing prodigious amounts. As in other regions, the most interesting wines come from small farms. Saint-Joseph, in the northern Rhone, extends for some distance between Condrieu in the north to Saint-Peray in the south. The reds are made from Syrah and the rare whites from Marsanne and Rousanne, and Viognier.
