Superb value Rhône red here, with textbook character and firm, fullish palate impression. The flavour lingers on...

This is mid-weight, rounded, easy drinking Cotes du Rhone with sweet plummy, grapy fruit of the 2009 vintage. Also...

It's only wine but I like it

Spot-on Cotes du Rhone, with ripe, sweet fruit, local herbs and pepper. All too easy to drink, but with enough backbone to keep it from tasting flabby. A lingering finish. Much more wine than one might expect for $15. Tasted Dec 2011.

Plums, blackberries, cigars, coffee, and spice on the nose. The wine is medium-bodied, very fruity and has ripe tannins. Very drinkable now and will keep for 2-3 years.

Deep violet colour, this Côte Du Rhône is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. This wine opens up with aromas of blackberry, dark plum, black olives, spices, toasty oak and espresso notes. On the mouthfeel medium to full bodied with alcohol at 14.7 %, balanced acidity and gritty tannins. The finish is medium length with dark fruit, pepper and toasty oak notes lingering. This is one of those wine I don’t get, I don’t smell Grenache at all, it smells more like Mourvèdre to me. What I am not fond of is the mouthfeel, it’s a little to rustic and to much toasty oak characteristic for my palate. It is not a bad wine for $15.00, but this is not something I would want to revisit.
