Vinsobres is particularly suitable for Syrah because it preserves the finesse which is often lost in more southern climates. It develops notes of violet, smoked meat and blackberries. Grenache is also suited to this terroir, full bodied and not heavy, with notes of black chocolate, cherry and typical Garrigue aromas.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Côtes du Rhône Villages Vinsobres les Cornuds comes from an up and coming appellation that is located in the northern part of the southern Rhône. The wines from this region always have a cool climate, almost northern Rhône-like character. The 2014 exhibits an inky purple color to go with lots of black pepper, violets, olive, and garrigue aromas and flavors. My note says "it's a northern Rhône Syrah with a kiss of the south." It will drink nicely for at least 4-5 years.
