    Winemaker's Notes:

    #89 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    A blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache.

    The color is a deep ruby with a purple edge. The syrah grape shows on the nose, with red fruit, black cherry and licorice. On the palate this combines power with elegance/ with its velvety, fleshy texture. The finish shows the lift typical of the cooler parts of the Rhône valley.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very pure, with superracy red cherry, raspberry and violet notes that stretch out through the lengthy, graphite-filled finish. There's lovely, integrated acidity. Delicious.

    Another equal part blend of Syrah and Grenache is the 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Vinsobres Les Cornuds, also from estate vineyards planted in limestone soils. The freshness of the vintage is well-displayed along with bracing acidity that buttresses substantial concentration, medium to full body, and a big, blue and black fruit-scented nose revealing hints of truffles, crushed rocks, violets, and spice.

    I'm a little torn on this wine. The 2007 blend is actually 65 syrah-35 grenache. It's everything you think it might be: lush and velvety texture with red cherries and black fruit, finished with a slightly peppery minerality. My issue with the wine is that it did not stand up to a red wine braised short rib. It fell really, really flat against it. It was a good wine before and after our actual meal, however.
