Medium+ ruby to purple with medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: The nose shows carnations, plums, blackberries, pomegranate, star anise, sandalwood, eucalyptus & cherry pie. The taste is rich showing similar notes as the nose with plums being dominant. Medium to medium+ body, low tannins, medium acidity & medium+ length.
Negatives: High alcohol that you can detect on the nose & taste.
Interesting Thing: The name is a take off Côte du Rhône and its style. Consistent year to year. Periodically the LCBO puts this wine on sale for $1 off.
Drink now on its own or pair it with lamb chops.
