Domaine du Colombier Hermitage 2010

Member Review by Alleigh:

It had a deep ruby color, with a garnet rim and big legs. On the nose, I was hit with barnyard and Band-Aid aromas, which make me think the wine had a bit of a Brett problem. That said, those aromas weren’t so overpowering as to be unpleasant. Following those smells, there was a nice mix of raspberry, black cherry, blackberry, along with something herbaceous and a touch of lead pencil. In the mouth, the wine was much fruiter, with all black fruit flavors— blackberry, blackcurrant, and black cherry. Following the fruits were dusty, meaty flavors, with only a touch of the barnyard and herbaceousness that was on the nose. For my full review of this wine, visit my blog at http://bit.ly/WJBpZ.

From Beaume. To be bottled in April 2012. Half new oak. Deep crimson. Very lively and solid. Real substance. May peak a bit sooner than the absolute classics of this appellation but this is a very good effort. Open and really rather GV. Jancis Robinson. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2010 Domaine du Colombier Hermitage 750ml
