"Le Corbeau" 2009

Elyse Winery

Le Corbeau (The Raven) is predominately Grenache, made in the style of the seductive and expressive wines of the Chateauneuf du Pape region of the Rhone Valley. This dark ruby-colored wine has alluring aromas of dried raspberries, red plums, violets, and white pepper along with hints of vanilla and orange peel. The richly textured palate has a smooth entry that leads to flavors of, raspberries, citrus rind, and intriguing notes of mace and cinnamon. This is a “thinkers wine”, very complex from start to finish. (note: if you don’t feel like thinking you still will enjoy!) The 2009 Le Corbeau will age beautifully for the next 6-10 years and pairs nicely with duck, lamb, venison, wild mushrooms, cassoulet and stews.
