Ruchets wines are made from Syrah vines growing on granite land, between juniper and green oak trees. Located East, in the Cornas appellation, the unique parcel -and pride of Jean-Luc Colombo- produces superior wines every year. The 2012 Ruchet boasts a gorgeous violet-tinted, shiny red hue. The nose exudes scents of cassis, blackberries, and spices: pepper, violet, or thicket. The palate is strong, spicy and warm, and leads to a persistent, sweet finish.
