Tasted like a generic CDR. Spice, light red fruit, astringency. Not typical of the core of pure blue/black fruit/brine flavors I look for in a Cornas.

Classic Northern Rhone stinkiness (not too much) on the nose is inviting. It has pleasant dryness and good acidity with high toned blackberries, game, and gentle curry spices. Really light on its feet, this should be great with food. It is old world in style.

This is excellent. Very dark color with notes of tapenade, pepper, black fruit and spice. Medium tannins with flavors of tapenade, herbs, roasted dark fruit and pepper. Lengthy finish.

Pacquiao vs. Mayweather Blind Tasting $60+ (Roswell, GA): Mine; deep dull purple, opaque core, lots of cloudiness- not very attractive; nose is unmistakably N. Rhone, smoked meat, plum, berry, violets, lots of purple, leather, olive and strong black pepper; an elegance to the layered palate, an old-school feel, tannins and structure were in check though not absent; I feel this is starting to drink really well; everyone thought this was Cote Rotie.

Presqu'au même niveau que le 2010. Se boit bien même en prime jeunesse avec un bon 2-3 heures de carafe.
Nez sur les mures, les violettes et le cassis avec un peu d'olive et de smoked meat.
En bouche, beaucoup de complexité, des bleuets, des herbes, du bacon et de la fumée. Très long et digeste, rien n'accroche.
Excellent!

Surprisingly approachable and far more charming and interesting than I would have thought at this stage. There is plenty of Northern Rhone Syrah marks here, pebbly dark-toned fruit, olives, violets and broth and there's a lovely freshness about this wine. The wine has great depth and intensity of fruit and a real sense of place even though there's perhaps just a small lack of the real, wild, rugged Cornas character. Will be a great wine to follow.

In the bouquet minerals, chocolate, bacon, black olives and herbs and spices. On the palate a lot of minerals as well, firm acidity and sticky tannin. Clearly Northern Rhone Syrah and special. Very early maturity now. Will improve with some more ageing. Around 2019? 90 – 92 for now.

Score reflects potential rather than current drinking. A too-young but promising, and reasonably approachable, Cornas. Classic flavor profile with ripe tannins, clean dark black fruit (plums? cassis?), good length. Enough acidity to balance but not prominent; not particularly mineral. As my notes against the 2006 and 2008 of the same wine said, a nice balance of modern and classic. A nervous energy that takes away form the wine but is likely to subside in 3-5 years. If the 2006 is any indication this will be better then. Promising; drinkable now but definitely room to improve.

Honey Butter Fried Chicken, Champagne, and some blinds (Chicago, IL): Served blind. It tends to be a bad sign when a wine is magenta in colour. Notes of black pepper and lots of young overexcited black fruit. Trouble brewing? The palate was nowhere as bad as what the nose led me to believe. I did think that it could be syrah, but if it was northern Rhone, it definitely was a low-end cuvee. The thin palate, showing some moderate fruit, but mostly acid before turning into water made it clear it was old world. A weird mix of juicy fruit and austerity -- the balance just doesn't work here.

This syrah has an extra gear. Truly remarkable, and approachable with a 5-hour decant. I'm an amateur with Cornas, but would note that I was happy to find this bottle wasn't tart like I was anticipating -- nor was it fruity. Like the Paris Granit 30, it's elegant, but it has much more complexity than that entry-level cuvee. Utterly worth the $57, and undoubtedly going to keep evolving.

A private dinner (Restaurant Aan de Poel **, Amstelveen, NL): Purple cherry colour; interesting nose, pure and aromatic, fresh fruit, black pepper, granite, added complexity from some attractive bretty notes; the palate is young and energetic, still a bit tight but not austere, has youthful charm and floral flavours, ripe phenolics, good length. A stylish Cornas, lovely now and in the next 5-7 years.

Pretty classic Syrah nose, smoky peppery notes; similar smokiness on the palate. Very mixed up at present and needs time. Coming together. Keep for five years at least.

We bought this at a restaurant last night and it was decanted and served to us. It was rather closed and intensely tannic (even with the decant). About half the bottle was left and was recorked. We opened it up today and let it get back to room temperature about 2pm before drinking at 8pm. Today we drank this side-by-side with a 2010 Ojai White Hawk Vineyard Syrah.

Today (i.e., after more that about 24 hrs open), fairly aromatic nose with cherry cola, bacon fat, raspberries. On the palate, the tannin comes on early and leaves a chalky coating in your mouth that sticks around for a while. Good acidity, but just much more unfocused than the Ojai White Hawk. I wanted to like this a lot more than I did.

Decanted for three hours. Lots of sediment. The decanter smelled for olive tapenade. The smell was not present in the glas. We found sour cherry on nose and palate and, wow, very sour. The finish was a bit short. We left half of the bottle for the next day. On day two we liked it better. The olive tapenade was now also in the glass and the palate had blood and iron as we like it in our Northern Rhone reds. Maybe the wine still needs more time.

We had this with grilled flank steak on 11/29/14. It had a deep, opulent bouquet of smoked meat, olive tapenade, violet, plum, blackberry, mineral and spice aromas. The palate was rich, dry and beautifully balanced with flavors of blackberry, plum, burnt toast, mineral and spice. 91+

The bouquet shows a lot of minerals like iron and rust. Also leather, pepper, bell pepper and some barnyard. Same on the palate with good acidity and fairly mild tannin.

I liked this, but it did come across as a little thin. Nice savory syrah notes, finish is a little short. A bit disappointing.

Drank well but quite large in style I found. Oak present for sure. Nice balance and not overly present tannins so for a young cornas it drank well ... just sweeter and more fruit than I expected.
