Tasting Notes: Red Berry, Herb, Smoke, Pepper
Vincent Paris has become a legend within Cornas, producing insanely drinkable wines from his six hectares of vines, most of which were inherited from his grandfather. The name of this wine, "30", references both the degree of slope of the vineyard as well as the average age of the vines.
A great intro to Cornas wines, in an easy to approach style. Medium to full body, well structured, marked acid, with grippy yet fine tannins.
This wine is a pure expression of Syrah. Juicy blackberry fruit, with black cherry, minerality, blueberry, smoke, savory spice, herb, and dusty notes. There's an impressively long, spicy finish. Pairs with any big red meat dish or slow-cooked stew.
