90 Points

Saturday, January 19, 2013 - Cornas Fest (Shane's abode, Portland OR): Nose: This is definitely on the richer side with tones of liqueur, dark red fruits, licorice, black fruits, and dark red berries.

Taste: Full bodied with very grippy tannins. This is still extremely young along with rich tones of dark red fruits, black cherries, liqueur, and dark red berries.

Overall: This shows off both the vintage and the producer, but is far from overdone. It isn't ready for primetime yet and does need more years to develop and smooth out.
