Domaine Galevan l"Esprit Devin Cotes du Rhone Village 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Big, spicy cherry and raspberry on the nose
Full bodied and richly textured on the palate
Long, dense finish with spicy dark fruit, fig, and spice
This wine is an excellent Cotes du Rhone Village, possibly the best I've ever had. It tastes like a Chateauneuf du Pape with dense fruit and spice layers that deliver intensity and a depth of flavor. I paid $20, which is a good price.
Serve with hearty food, like roasted meat with rich sauces. Raise a glass!
