Perrin et Fils 2009 Les Cornuds - 90+pts
Availability: Private wine stores like Everything Wine in BC
Cost: $20-23 (BC)
Date Tasted: January 30th, 2012
Tasting Notes: This is a well made Côtes du Rhône Village blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache from the town of Vinsobres which yielded subtle notes of dark fruit and cool rocks on the reserved nose and then surprised with a massive concentration of plum, sour cherry, pepper, clove and oak characters on the mouth watering palate. The Syrah is the dominant component despite the equal quantities of Grenache and yet the tannins are fairly mild, though don't let that deter you from laying down one or two bottles for further development. Drink 2012-2015.
