Cave de Tain L'Hermitage Cornas Rouge 2013
- 90 / 100 Parker
Cornas vines grow on granite sands, and are more subject to Mediterranean influence. The vineyard takes the form of an amphitheatre, surrounding the village of Cornas itself.
Very small appellation, with steep slopes, producing only red SYRAH wines, rich and powerful, with accents of the South.
Red wines of Cornas show remarkable ageing potential, thanks to their imposing tannic structure.
Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cornas is superb, and has outstanding potential" drink date 2014-2014
EYE: Dark ruby colour
NOSE: Spicy nose with hints of tobacco, vanilla, red and black fruits
MOUTH: The palate is powerful, rich and silky, with toasty, roasted notes, liquorice and black olives. Pronounced tannic structure, good concentration and length. The "finale" is complex with fruits and spices together.
