Deep, spicy dark fruits line this earthy and liquorice basement. Upstairs, there is tobacco and boot leather. Roofed with lavender and coffee, this is the house that cornas built.
Layered and with a velvety texture, the palate is luxurious and the nose is liqueur-like smooth. It has depth and balance to warrant 25 years, or 25 minutes.
The 2005 Syrah Moritz Vineyard was sourced from "only" 30-year-old vines. It offers floral notes, cassis, bacon, smoked meat, and blueberry compote. Opulent and sweet with gobs of flavor, it should have a 20 year lifespan.
Rich and powerful, this is plush and velvety and brimming with raspberry, cherry, bittersweet chocolate and creamy spice notes that remain intense through the long, silky, polished finish. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases imported.
Deep violet. Smoky dark berry and kirsch aromas display impressive depth and power, with an overlay of sexy oak spice. Fat, palate-coating dark fruit flavors are supported by gentle acidity, gaining a suave cocoa quality on the finish. Soft tannins add shape to the sweet, jammy finish. This is pretty seductive today.
With bold aromas of blackberries and blueberries to go with hints of cracked pepper and chocolate, the 2005 Moritz makes a statement. In the mouth, it's full-bodied, rich and slightly warming, and the alcohol continues to show through the long, spice-driven finish.
