00 Noel Verset, Cornas

Animal fur and fresh powdered black pepper nose seasons a savory palate full of duck meat, spice, chicken liver, and mesquite with hints of metal, medium acid, and drying tannins. Old school, this wine is surprisingly light on fruit, though plums do eventually fill the void. Despite its raunchy flavors, this is still a wine moderate in its feel, expressing the wild side of syrah without any sense of overextraction.
