This mouth-puckering concoction has a deep cherry robe and a mute nose of currants with a hint of blueberry. There is some stemminess on the bouquet as well - possibly due to the Mourvedre component. The wine is more structured, less juicy and less unctious than more Grenache-dominated Rasteau, but the mouth-feel suggests aging to 2017 or 2018. An almond-like acerbity on the finish and a slightly weak fruit core are the only detractions at this point. Good value. 88 points.

this wine showed typical blackberry fruit with some gamy aromas along with violet undertones. on the palate, the black fruit was dense with an almost sweet jamminess to it.there was some spice,vanilla and a gamy leathery tone in the background.

Coffee and rubber on the nose + some foot. Not much on the palate.

Comprised of Grenache, Cinsault and Carignane, this simple style CDR is very pretty in color and the aromas come off rather succinctly: violet, wood, vanilla and earth. Tart cherry is most prevalent, with soft tannins and a gentle midpalate. There is an undertone of stewed fruit here that lingers in the end, but the tartness cleans it right up. If braised short ribs are your thing, this is your wine.

This has nice ripeness and cut, with linzer torte and blackberry fruit supported by bright acidity and backed by a lingering, toasted spice finish. Very tasty. Drink now.

A dark and powerful Rhandocirc;ne, with all of the ripe fruit, gaminess and spice that this region is famous for. Earthy and mineral-driven, it expresses all the richness of the Rhandocirc;ne terroir. This is one of the best values among wines of this quality, and I recommend you buy it by the case before it's all gone! Pair this wine with barbecued chicken or French onion soup.

Ripe and well-focused, delivering a dark beam of plum, fig sauce and graphite, laced with hints of lavender and pastis. Very solid, with nice buried acidity holding the finish together. Drink now through 2011.
