Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas Terres Brûlées 2011
Jeffery Lindenmuth - September 2014
Brawny, bold, and juicy, this Syrah is wrapped around a molten fruit core of raspberry and plum, with notes of grilled herbs, anise, and bramble. Full-bodied and bold on the palate, hints of oaky spice and toast lend a modern edge to this powerful red that will benefit from up to a decade in the cellar.
