2003 Paul Jaboulet Ainé Cornas “Les Grandes Terrases”

The color shows the wine’s age, just starting to go from deeper colors in the center to a brick red at the edges. The nose shows classic Northern Rhone - a bushel blackberries in a room full of dry-aging beef. The same blackberries and meat show on the palate, with black pepper, raspberries join the party on the mid-palate. Meat flavors move toward smoked meats on the finish, adding lingering licorice. Tannins are fine, soft, mouth-coating. Drink with dry-aged New York Strip. Highly Recommended. DH
