Éric & Jöel Durand 2017 Empreintes (Cornas)

Flavors of spicy black cherry compote and baked plums abound in this rich, almost fleshy expression of Cornas. Aged in 20% new barriques, it's a soft, open-knit Syrah framed by silky tannins and lingering whiffs of earth and scorched underbrush. Approachable now but should hold through 2027. Anna Lee C. Iijima
