PnP. A lot to like here: classic but restrained/refined Cornas flavours. Sappy, spicy red fruit, slightly dry, woody (not a fault though) tannins shut down the sweet, rich core of fruit halfway through. Needs decanting, or better yet, another 5-10years -- but classic norhern rhone syrah combining animal notes and fruit.
"Paint it Black! Black as night, black as coal!" Some of the darkest color I've seen in a wine. I've never been to Provence, but have smelled herbes de Garrigue in a spice market and this had some of that. But mostly just deep, dark berry fruit and smoke. Brambly like a well-made CA Zin. Intense and powerful, with years of tannin integration to go.
Beautiful floral, bramble, eucalyptus, spice, wood, earth, plum, candy perfumed nose. Good structure, notes of game, black fruit, spice, bay leaf, plum. Old school wine that is not out to do anyone favors, love it.
