Caboche Côtes du Rhône 2005

Member Review by winolee:

Nose of strawberries and bright cherries. A lot of fruit - red cherries, cassis. Pleasantly tannic, could have a longer finish. Nice for drinking alone or with food. I prefer it a bit colder. This bottle contains 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 7% Mouvèdre and 8% the other 10 out of the 13 grape varieties that are used in Southern Rhone vinos. RP 90

Domaine du Père Caboche:
For generations my family has been both wine growers and blacksmiths. My father Théophile Boisson was orphaned when he was only three years old, hence he was unable to train to as a blacksmith. Fortunately his mother helped foster a keen interest in grapes and wine, that led to him becoming a wine maker. The family nickname of “Caboche” derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails, by which our estate is still known.

<p>This Red Rhone blend consists in 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 7% Mourv&egrave;dre and 8% Cinsault, Counoise, Muscardin, Vaccar&egrave;se and Terret Noir. This wine is not intended for long-term aging, but should be enjoyed within 5-8 years of bottling.</p>
