    Winemaker's Notes:

    Grape variety: 100% Syrah from very old vines (90+ years)

    Color: Inky black

    Bouquet: The nose is complex with both floral and fruity flavors.

    Taste: On the palate, flavors of black fruit, blackcurrants and herbs dominate, accented by a touch of vanilla. A solid, concentrated wine that will continue to evolve for at least two decades.

    Serving suggestions: This wine will match perfectly with steak and most game meats.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2004 Cornas Les Ruchets, which sees more new oak, comes across as more austere than the Terres Brulees, but it is a bigger wine, although not necessarily better, because the new oak seems to overwhelm the more delicate fruit of this vintage. This dark ruby/purple wine is tannic, backward, and while perhaps more will emerge with aging, I doubt the concentration will carry all the tannin in this wine. It is impressively pure, and it is a relatively big wine for the vintage, but I wouldn’t want to touch it for 4-5 years.

    Toastier, with cedary components and dark flavors of espresso and black olive. This is very firm, dense and muscular - the essence of concentrated Cornas opening with air to show more floral notes. Hold 10 years or more.
