Cornas is 100% syrah made from old vines on property in the northern Rhone Valley. It undergoes a long maceration and is fermented 18 months in oak. It is black in color with aromas of raspberries, fruit and oak. Smooth and well rounded mouth of fruit and cassis with a supple long peppery finish. Truely a good Cornas. Would be great with meat or stronger cheeses.
