The Côtes du Rhône wines are (like everything here) perennial value hound favorites. They virtually always sell out on prearrival, so if you have a need for an everyday southern Rhône red wine, you want to think about the full year cycle ahead and fill the kitty now.
“Vivid ruby-red. Aromas of ripe red berries, garrigue and licorice, lifted by a peppery element. Smooth and nicely expansive on the palate; bitter cherry and raspberry flavors are given spine by juicy acidity. Closes with repeating pepperiness, gentle tannins and good tenacity, leaving behind a subtly sweet raspberry note.” 89 Josh Raynolds for the 2014 vintage, NOT THE 2016 OFFERED HERE
