Cornas - March 12, 2014 - Host: Mike

Cornas boasts of the oldest vineyards in France, and the steep slopes and granitic soils forces roots to reach deep for water. All the wines are 100% Syrah, and producers using traditional methods result in wines that are dark and tannic. In many cases, these wines are unapproachable for 5 years, but then yield bold flavors that may take many years to hit their stride.
