2007 vintage, it's actually Grenache Syrah Mourvedre 50, 30, 20. Very nice blend. Deep purple color, leathery dark fruit and a silky smooth finish. A bit more "fruit forward" and less earthy than what I would have expected. Reminds me of a California Syrah more than a Cotes du Rhone. Nevertheless, a very good wine. Highly recommended.

From ancient terraced vineyards comprised of gravel on a bed of sandy clay in the area of Cairanne and Gigondas in the southern Rhone Valley.

La Louvee Cornas 2009 - 91 points, Wine & Spirits/ This is cheerful Cornas in the Colombo style, dark yet ebullient, with plenty of spice and lily florality on the purple plum fruit. A firm earthiness sustains it through a long finish, glowing ruddily through the smooth, vanilla-infused blackness of the wines. For braised rabbit with bacon.

The wines, and the pizza to go with them/ As it opened up, the fruit component became lusher, improving its marriage with pizza. "It's a fairly serious tasting wine for the money, with good complexity to bridge through the assortment of pizzas."

French, California Wines Battle it out Over Food/ The third course, Porcini Risotto with Petit Gris snails, moved us into the reds. The dish was paired with two syrahs: Jean-Luc Colombo 2001 Cornas "La Louvee", produced from 70-year-old vines, and Testarossa 2002 Gary's Vineyard Syrah, from perhaps the most famous vineyard in California's Monterey County. Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas "La Louvee" was tighter, more intense, spicy and very profound, a monumental Rhone that won't even begin to approach its peak for at least another decade - or two. DESPITE THE EXTRAORDINARY QUALITY OF EACH WINE, THE CORNAS WAS A RELATIVELY EASY WINNER.

Les Abeilles Rouge 2006 - Everyday with Rachael Ray/ A spicy, woodsy wine recommended with: Veal and Olive ragu with pappardelle, Ground beef Potpies with caraway-salt crust or Lamb sausage burgers with feta tzatziki.

Les Abeilles Rouge 2005 - 88 Points, Wine Spectator/ Tangy up front, with grilled herb, tobacco and red plum fruit. This lets the grilled herb edge take over on the finish, which shows nice grip.

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.
