France → Cornas
ryansnyder reviewed Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas Les Ruchets 2004 on May 17, 2010
Wow. This Cornas is an animal right now, and was unfortunately opened way too soon. But it's a great wine now, and wow it is definitely destined for greatness. It's made from 100% Syrah from vines that are over 90 years old. It shows a gorgeous fruit array of tarry black plum and black currant, a smattering of herbs, espresso and cedar. And the oak and grape tannins are nothing less than muscular right now. Lay this down for a good long while, until around 2020.
