2015 Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas La Louvee

Rhone | Syrah
"Fleshy in feel, with a ganache edge around the core of warmed plum sauce, fig paste and blackberry reduction flavors. Loam and charcoal notes line the finish, while the fruit plays out wonderfully. Shows a touch more fruit than grip, but the fruit is really beautiful. Best from 2020 through 2035. 400 cases made, 150 cases imported."

95 PointsWine Spectator
"While primary on the nose, fresh cherry and berry notes take on a smokier depth on the palate. It's an intensely ripe but elegant wine, with supple curves anchored by brisk acidity and dense, penetrating tannins. The finish is long and lavish. Still taut, it should open and expand from 2019–2030."

"The full-bodied 2015 Cornas la Louvee offers authentic Cornas notes of roasted meat, licorice and cracked pepper wrapped in a robe of cedar, leather and cinnamon. It's not a fruit-forward wine but it's already approachable, with a ripe, creamy mouthfeel and a long, supple finish. It should drink well for at least a decade."
