Wine Advocate Review Rated 88 More serious and endowed with more muscle and richness is the 2011 Perrin Vinsobres Les Cornuds. This wine comes from the very cool northern sector of the Cotes du Rhone appellation, which is a treasure trove for Syrah. The Perrins vinify the Syrah in truncated tanks and then age it in barrel, while the Grenache is fermented and aged in stainless steel, with blending taking place after six months. This beautiful 2011 displays plenty of black cherry fruit and lavender as well as hints of blackberry, licorice and graphite. Medium-bodied, richly fruity and offering loads of perfume, this is a wine to drink over the next several years.
Wine Tasting Notes The color is a deep ruby with a purple edge. The syrah grape shows on the nose, with red fruit, black cherry and liquorice. On the palate this combines power and elegance with its velvety, fleshy texture. The finish shows the lift typical of the cooler parts of the Rhone valley.
