Domaine Galevan l"Esprit Devin Cotes du Rhone Village 2009 Wine Review (NW)


Tasting notes:

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

Summary:

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!
