Nothing special here.
Nose and taste had what I can best describe as over ripe fruits. (Strawberry and plum).
Tasted: Feb. 2010

Almost no nose whatsover. Taste a little rough and a little too much tannins even for a wine this young. Flavours are not subtle and hit the palate like a blockbuster bomb. Drinkable, but would spend a little more for better quality.
Sometimes, even frequently, the Cotes-du-Rhone provides great value in the under-$15 range. Unfortunately, this is not one of those times. Odd flavours which indicate either overripe or poorly handled/sorted fruit. Soft, with virtually no structure. Drink ASAP or if you haven't opened your bottle, return to the store and spend a few extra $$$ on something better.
