This Cotes Du Rhone value is a light red in color with a tinge of watermelon red towards the rim. The bouquet is very nice with pipe tobacco, flowers, and yeast filled with fruity aromas.
In the nose there is a faint layer of chocolate covered cherries. This wine is chewy, balanced, cherry flavors and chocolate on the palate as well. It has good structure, a little smoke and a nice finish.
For $13 this is a solid Rhone pleasure and worth seeking out. (NW) is up for the weekend and this was our prelude to an awesome Steak Florentine with homemade pasta. Raise a glass!
