Imported New Releases/ This feels modern in its fruitiness and new oak scents, yet it doesn’t taste pushed: just perfectly ripe syrah, its plushness supported by smooth tannins, to enjoy with a thick-cut steak.

International Wine Cellar/ Saturated ruby color. A huge bouquet of blackberry, dark cherry, blackcurrant and licorice is nicely complemented by spice and floral notes. Velvety-rich, with impressively dense dark berry and plum flavors, along with notes of bacon fat and cracked pepper. Finishes with broad, palate-coating tannins that build slowly but never overwhelm the fruit, even with a good 30 minutes of aeration.

International Wine Cellar/ Deep ruby. Tangy, high-pitched aromas of bitter cherry, licorice and spicy oak. Rich and full, with sweet dark berry and dark chocolate flavors that cling to the palate. Extremely dense and velvety, conveying an almost overripe fruit character.

/ Jean-Luc Colombo is one of the great Rhone Valley winemakers, and nowhere is he better than on his home turf, the village of Cornas, with his sturdy, 100% Syrah single-vineyard Cornas wines. The 2004 La Louvee, with its 85-year-old vines, will be one of his great wines. It is full-bodied, opulent, intense, and concentrated, with blue and black fruits, and power to spare. A superb Syrah wine, this is very well-balanced, with a long finish. It obviously needs a few years of aging, but should become a masterpiece.

Cellar Notes: 2005 Northern Rhone Valley, Part I/ Shows its typically powerful profile of layered, fleshy black and blue fruits.

/ Strongly ferrous and minerally with blackberry and blueberry fruit. There's no evidence of the fragility of some 2004 northern Rhones. This is rich, concentrated and meaty, yet creamy with supple tannins. Very flattering with a long finish. This should age well.

/ Dark, inky in color. What a wonderful bouquet this has developed, offering floral hints, notes of black olive and bright mulberry and blueberry fruit. This is still very youthful and incredibly packed with flavor.
