“A charming 50-50 blend of Syrah and Grenache from one of the most picturesque areas of the Southern Rhône (I once rode a horse through these lovely villages); silky, bright, juicy and a very good value.”

“Ripe and expressive, with a lovely beam of plum puree and violet racing through, laced with subtle mineral and anise hints along the way. Ends with a late whiff of dried garrigue on the finish. Drink now through 2026.”

90-92 points, Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2018 Vinsobres Les Cornuds is an even split of Syrah and Grenache that just screams Syrah in its blackberry, violets, ground pepper, and meaty aromas and flavors. Concentrated, medium to full-bodied, and balanced, it’s a terrific wine that’s going to keep for 7-8 years or more.”

88-90 points, Wine Advocate
“A 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2018 Vinsobres Les Cornuds features tarry notes and dark flavors of tapenade allied to brighter fruit notes. Medium to full-bodied, it’s firm, crisp and slightly dusty on the finish, in need of a bit more time.”
