The base 2016 Cornas from Robert is a killer wine that shows the style of the vintage as well as the quality of the estate brilliantly. Crème de cassis, blackberries, smoked earth, spice, and hints of meatiness all flow to a layered, seamless, full-bodied Cornas that does everything right. Balanced, pure, and elegant, it's well worth a case purchase and will keep for 15-20 years.

Ripe blackberry and cherry compote aromas are complemented by suggestions of peppery spices, licorice and violet. Taut, sharply focused black and blue fruit flavors show very good delineation, and a smoky mineral element adds lift and back-end cut. Fine-grained tannins add subtle grip to a spicy, floral-dominated finish that hangs on with strong tenacity. -- Josh Raynolds
