Durand Empreintes Cornas 2005

This wine is pretty well priced for a Cornas.  An aroma of plums and spices.  On the palate, tannins and plums.  It's pretty good, but I wasn't entirely convinced it was anything more than that.  85 to 86 points. (7-7.1/10)

Abv: 13.5%
Price: around $60
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Probably not: I'd probably still prefer a more interesting Australian shiraz for the price.
