"The 2013 Cornas is a brilliant wine from a less than straightforward vintage. Possessing surprising ripeness in its black cherry, wild strawberry, licorice, and ground herb-like aromas and flavors, itÄôs medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and balanced with a forward, delicious personality that just screams, ÄúDrink me know!Äù Completely destemmed and aged 12 months used barrels, itÄôs worth checking out and will drink nicely for 5-7 years. -JD"

"Well-stuffed, featuring dark fig, blackberry and black currant fruit flavors melding with charcoal and roasted bay leaf accents. The long finish has a loamy edge. Best from 2017 through 2028"

100% Syrah

Fruit comes from vines in three regions – Les Chaillots (20-years-old), La Côte (80- to 90-years-old) and La Sabarotte (35-years-old). The organically farmed vineyards lie on steep slopes aligning the Rhône River that are rich in granite. Although purchased from a close friend, fruit for this wine is harvested and picked by the Equis team.

Hand-harvested grapes are 70% to 100% destemmed to focus on the purity and primary fruit freshness that is meant to be enjoyable immediately. After several days of maceration, the wine undergoes a 20- to 30-day fermentation period including malolactic in a combination of oak barrels (5% to 10% new) ranging in formats and concrete tank. Aside from one or two pumpovers to homogenize or aerate, extraction is done entirely by hand with punch downs once or twice a day.
