Staff Pick Notes

A sublime Cornas from farmer and wine maker Vincent Paris. He's dedicated to working steep vineyards inherited from his grandfather. The vines are gnarled, old bushes (some are 90 years old) with a nice view over the town of Cornas. The "30" on the label is in reference to the gradient of the slope of the vineyard (he also produces a "60" from a steeper angle). This is considered to be the more "accessible" of the two, meaning it drinks well young. I'd also describe it as seductive because of how effortlessly it draws you in. The hue is an opaque, deep ruby. Aromas are a cloud of camphor, black pepper, lillies, gravel, roasted plums, smoked meat. It leads with pure dark fruit with a smoky mid-palate, and a savory, mineral finish. The tannins have a gentle grip. Prime northern Rhône Syrah with just enough force to reel you in.

Syrah

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it will produce. Typically, New World Shiraz yields bigger, fruitier wines than the the peppery Syrahs...
