Les Forots Côtes du Rhône

External Review by Palm Bay International:

/ Rosemary and black olive notes support the dense, black fruit, with a firm streak of acidity keeping everything together. Give it a thick juicy steak to balance the richness.

Les Forots Cotes du Rhone 2006 - 89 Points, Wine Enthusiast/ Colombo's Les Forots is 100% Syrah from the northern Rhone, yet it's fruit driven and supple in style, with black cherry flavors and a soft, creamy mouthfeel that makes it immediately accessible.

Cellar Notes: 2005 Northern Rhone Valley, Part I/ It's 100 percent Syrah, grown on chalk and granite soils just past the end of the Cornas appellation. The vines are 65 to 70 years old, and the wine offers lots of mineral, olive and red fruits, similar to its big brother from Cornas.

/ ...deep cassis flavors, some licorice, tar, spice, and earth. It is a good wine with a Northern Rhône Syrah aromatic and flavor profile.

/ One of the real values from Colombo and his négociant portfolio is the declassified Cornas, which he bottles under the moniker of Les Forots-Côtes du Rhône. The 2004 (100% Syrah) is austere but has some soft black cherry fruit, medium body, and decent pepper and spice. It is best drunk over the next several years.

/ Fresh and floral, with a violet note leading the way for purple fruit notes and a minerally finish. 100 persent Syrah, from vines just outside Cornas.
