MEATY, SMOKY, AND FERAL: USDA PRIME NORTHERN RHÔNE SYRAH
Domaine du Courbis is arguably the leading light in modern, deeply structured Syrah from Cornas. This 2013 vintage was an immediate highlight of our tastings last week. The 100% new oak is generally flashy on these wines when young, but in this middle-aged Cornas, it's perfectly integrated. It's so difficult to get anything but fresh release wines from the Northern Rhône, but we LOVE the feral, meaty, smoky flavors of older Syrah with some development of flavor. The cost of entry for this bottling is exceptional for the QPR and deserves a seat at your next steak night. La Sabarotte is a tiny 1.4ha parcel single vineyard site with extremely old, low-yielding vines from 1947 that produce tiny, inky black grapes packed with intense flavors of black fruits, peppercorn, olive tapenade, tar and crushed granite. Less than a case remains.
