Jean-Luc Colombo Syrah Cornas la Louvee France Rhone Valley Dry 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Inky ruby. Intensely floral nose shows spicy dark berries and cherry, with exotic oak spice and licorice accents. Lush and round, with deep, sweet blackberry and plum flavors nicely framed by very soft tannins. Nicely firm on the finish, picking up a tangy mineral note and displaying fine, lightly gripping tannins.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

The 2005 Cornas La Louvee (fewer than 2,000 bottles produced) is a seriously endowed effort that remains incredibly tannic, backward, and structured. A classic example of the vintage, it is well-endowed yet also forbiddingly backward, and painfully hard and austere. I like the character of the black fruit, crushed rock, scorched earth, etc, and believe it is just a question of time. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020+.
