Occasional Wine Note: The Cornas region is one of the Cru wine regions of the Rhône Valley well known for producing powerful, ageable, world-class Syrahs. We think this is one is a stellar specimen. It's big and powerful with dark fruits, cured meats, big tannins, and great spicy notes. Enjoy now or in a decade or so.

    This inky, intensely plummy Syrah balances rich, pulsating black-fruit flavors against lip-smacking cassis and accents of tapenade, charcuterie and blood. Sourced from 90-year-old vines and aged 22 months in oak (15% new), the penetrating wine is framed by fine, firm tannins and lingering notes of vanilla, chocolate and earth. Drink 2023–2040.

    Critic Score: 94

    Nicely packed, with a mix of dark currant and blackberry compote notes that are still coiled up, along with bay, dark olive and racy sanguine flavors. Persistent and focused on the finish, with plenty in reserve. Best from 2023 through 2035.
