I love Côtes du Rhône. They are classics untouched by oak overdrive. I paid $14.45 CAD for it at the SAQ. The $7.78 USD price above bugs me. Truth be told SAQ workers are unionized and get a great deal of training, so we pay a little for that. The dry cherry "robe" (colour) is pleasing to the eye. I used to have a silk night gown of the exact same tint which made me feel like Hugh Hefner. The tannins are much present but still harmonious. This wine could bear to age a little. Aromas of pepper and berries. Alcohol too present for my tastes. All and all a correct every day wine. Would accompany with turkey or light meat.

A great value for an "every day" wine, and a good introduction to French wine. Ready to drink now, but previous review is correct-could age a bit.
