The Côtes du Rhône rouge is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% each of Syrah and Cinsault. Although it always punches way above its weight, the 2018 is a bomb of sheer deliciousness and drinkability.
3 Stars (Extraordinary) Washington Post– 2018 vintage
This pour is unusually fruit-forward for a Rhone wine, the effect of a riper-than-usual year. It’s bold and juicy, with lots of blackberry, plum and raspberry fruit, along with a hint of the regional wild herbs known as garrigue.
The importer will soon be transitioning to the 2019, but there is still plenty of this vintage around. It actually improves two or three days after opening. ABV: 14.5 percent.
