Famille Perrin Vinsobres les Cornuds 2009
Editorial Reviews for Famille Perrin Vinsobres les Cornuds
Gamy pomegranate fruit hits the nose followed by notes of juniper, violet, and a whisper of coffee bean. This is rich and soft in the mouth, downright supple with a fine tension of sweet dark slightly stewy fruits and chalky, savory tannins. This lacks some acidity but does delivery good, rich woodsy, huckleberry and black berry flavors right through the mineral laced and slightly meaty, umami toned finish. This has a lot to offer, though it is a bit ponderous. 84pts
A splendid little wine by Perrin et fils, this regular Southern Rhone offering is redolent of wild blueberry and bilberry with soft tannin and blended red fruit mid-palate - perfect for current consumption from a highly touted vintage (which, in this instance, actually draws a bull's eye). Smooth, slightly sweet, creamy style is perfect at this price point. An excellent Grenache-based wine and highly recommended to the budget-minded.
Resinous and brambly with some damp earth. Bright cherry fruit with a perfect amount of syrah spice. Lovely.
Cherry and black pepper.
Very nice and drinkable.
Lovely deep red with blackish hints of colour. Fragrant with dark cherries, spices, herbs and a wonderful soft yet earthy character. Good tannins but not aggressive, gentle touch of wood. The wine fills the mouth with flavour and leaves the palate with satisfying crispness and rich flavour.

This is a lot of wine for $13, silky and fresh with spicy red raspberry flavor. The acidity keeps it long and mouthwatering, ready for steak frites.
A round, easy style, with a dusting of grilled herb over the open-knit red and black cherry fruit. Thereandrsquo;s a stony hint on the finish, which fills out nicely in the glass. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvandegrave;dre. Drink now.
Bursting with cherry and strawberry aromas, this Rhandocirc;ne red packs a peppery punch. Subtly integrated fruit embraces an underlying earthiness that rounds out the finish beautifully.

The 2007 Cotes du Rhone Reserve red (60% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre) possesses beautiful crunchy, juicy, blackberry and cherry fruit as well as hints of underbrush, pepper, and black cherries. Medium-bodied and silky-textured, it is ideal for drinking over the next 3andndash;4 years.
Lightly firm, with good cherry, warm stone and grilled herb notes that stay focused through the bright finish. Drink now.
A sensational bargain, the 2009 Perrin et Fils Cotes du Rhone Reserve red is composed of 60% Grenache (from the estate vineyards at Prebois), 20% Syrah (from the estate vineyards in Vinsobres), and 20% Mourvedre. It offers lots of black cherry fruit, underbrush, licorice, pepper, and spice notes in a medium-bodied, richly fruity style with no hard edges. Their 2008 was a surprisingly good effort, but the 2009 is slightly riper and bigger.
