Tightly focused and very intense, with a fresh sanguine edge followed quickly by tangy white pepper and violet notes. The core of plum skin, cassis and linzer torte waits in reserve. The finish is sleek and very long, with a great buried iron note. Shows a kiss of modernity, but is firmly grounded in its terroir.

This is intense, with layers of dark plum, fig and blackberry confiture flavors rolling through, carried by smoldering charcoal and bay leaf notes. Grippy throughout, but the integration is there, while ganache, licorice root and sweet tapenade details fill in on the finish. Impressive. Best from 2020 through 2040. From France.

From 70-year-old vines, this cedar-tinged wine reflects its maturation in one-third new oak. Brown sugar, cracked pepper and plum notes mingle easily into a pleasant, silky Cornas that should have broad appeal.

Dark purple. Powerful smoke- and mineral-accented aromas of dark berries, cherry liqueur and vanilla, along with a suggestion of olive in the background. Smooth, broad and sweet on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry and violet pastille flavors and a jolt of smoky minerality on the back half. Shows quite impressive energy and focus for its heft. Finishes velvety and extremely long, displaying excellent focus, harmonious tannins and lingering spiciness.

A sensational Cornas that readers shouldn't miss is the 2013 Cornas Le Vallon de l'Aigle (which translates to "The Valley of the Eagle"); it comes from a single, south-facing parcel of old vines and is only made in top vintages. Its inky purple color is followed by a sensational perfume of graphite, crushed rocks/wet granite, game-like meats and ample dark fruits. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied red that has an incredible, mouth-filling texture, no hard edges, fine tannin and a great finish. I hate to admit that this is the first time I've tasted this wine, but it's one serious Cornas that's up with the cr?me de la cr?me of the vintage!

Bright purple. Intense blackberry and boysenberry aromas, with sexy star anise and violet pastille nuances. Stains the palate with vibrant black and blue fruit flavors, picking up spiciness and sweetness with air. Finishes with a suave, alluringly sweet quality, excellent tenacity and silky, harmonious tannins. Quite graceful for a Cornas, or for any wine from the northern Rhone for that matter.

Bright purple. Fresh blackberry and cassis aromas are complicated by cracked pepper, violet and pungent herbs. Suave, alluringly sweet dark berry flavors are underscored by smoky mineral and floral qualities and lifted by tangy acidity. Grows spicier with aeration, finishing with notes of star anise and black pepper and superb length.

Complex aromas with floral, cassis, cooking spice, and oak. Powerful flavors of ripe black fruit, blueberry compote, cigar box, tea, black pepper, toasted caramel, and clove. Soft on the palate, with a long, balanced finish, ending with a hint of violets. A luscious Syrah.

A surprisingly supple Cornas, the 2009 ?Valley of the Eagle? delivers rich plum and smoke notes. It?s an already approachable, mouthfilling, superripe Syrah that should express its origins more clearly in about 10 years.

... This is a wine of great persistence. It shows ample fruit, but a splash of acidity keeps it light in the mouth. Ripe tannins and a wonderfully extended finish complete the package.

This has lots of range, with crushed plum, braised fig and mulled blackberry fruit flavors all mingling with spice, red licorice and sweet tapenade notes. The long, driven finish shows the chalky side of the appellation, without being overly severe. Very impressive. Formerly the Force One bottling.
