  • Discovered a couple of bottles of this in my cellar and decided to check in on one of them. Looks like a young wine in the glass, the color is still dark purple. Classic Clape aromatics, game, rustic fruit, Cornas. Smooth on the palate with wild, rustic flavors of dark fruit, dark olives, tar and smoke. Good persistence, even if this doesn't dig as deep as the Cornas bottling from Clape. Wonderful, true wine. With the Benkos and Milaccios in our house.

  • Color: medium ruby -> medium ruby rim. No sign of bricking. Bouquet offered up animal scents, beef, barnyard, road tar and olives. Intoxicating nose right off the PnP. Palate was sturdy and quite agreeable. Dense, full bodied with still some tannins to resolve. Leather, olives and a little bacon. I have the impression this is just starting into it's drinking window. Great syrah and considering these are from Clape's "young" vines, I can only wonder how delicious the regular Cornas bottling must be!

  • beautiful, rich Cornas with a nose of wild herbs and perfume and the palate is rich, dense fruit with mild pepper and ripe, red plum. There's the remainder of chewy tannin and a strong pine/ forest floor quality.

  • Dark, quite dense, powerful Syrah nose, on palate dark and slightly sweet red fruit, some pine needle and winter spice, backed up by tall and strong tannic structure. Well integrated, but still youthful and tightly wound. Evolved nicely in the glass. Should last a while and may show more of itself in future years.
