Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

2001 Colombo Les Pins Couches

Jean Luc Colombo is a jack of all trades - grapegrower, winemaker, consultant, wine merchant in the Rhone Valley of France. Les Pins Couches (sleeping pines) is certainly not asleep - far from it. This lively, nuanced Syrah has all the spice and herbs one could hope for, with a hint of wildness thrown in. It actually goes well with a wide range of foods because it is well balanced and medium bodied, not a huge jammy wine.
