This has a wonderful nose filled with meat, floral mint, and green olive aromas all topped with a nice dash of cracked pepper. On entry this is filled with dusty tannins supporting stiff fruit that shows a nice blend of concentration and minerality but this does lack some acidity and finishes fairly quickly showing some heat and clumsy extraction on the finish. 85pts

Just bursting with intense fruitiness and a touch of oaken spice this is simple and modern on the nose. A touch soft in the mouth and even loose this seems both over-cropped and over-extracted with a very industrial feel that combines a hollow midpalate with somewhat austere tannins. With time this gains a bit of elegance but really only because it lacks stuffing though what fruit there is nice, ripe and sweet. Simple and ordinary . 86pts

Paid $59.95 at Kermit Lynch in Berkeley several years ago and am a bit disappointed. A bit austere and leaves kind of slight chalky feel in my mouth, although it's a lovely color. Maybe should have aged a little longer? No, I don't think that would help. I'm thinking maybe my wine cellar is too warm? We had several power outages 2 summers ago when PG&E transformers near my house blew up. Or maybe it's just mediocre no matter what? Served it with a Scandinavian meat turnover topped with creme fraiche and chutney and a salad. Wine was adequate, but certainly not worth the price.

Tasted in two components: #1, a blend of Tezier and Patou: intense red berry and floral scents and flavors, with a spicy overtone. Juicy and precise, finishing with excellent cut and sweetness. #2, from young vines in Reynard: much darker in pro... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Features a racy core of red currant, damson plum and blackberry fruit stitched with chalky tannins and backed by warm stone and olive pit notes on the finish. Enlivened with brisk acidity, this is approachable now, but improves with brief cellaring. ... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Auguste Clape Cornas Renaissance 750ml
