Château Saint-Roch Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône 2005

Member Review by tabednar:

A very nice Côtes-du-Rhône made from Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault that was definitely ready to drink. Medium bodied and with mild tannins and a earthy finish. Hints of raspberries and spice hit you quickly but then dissipate. Very good choice for the price, especially if you want to get a feel for Côtes-du-Rhône.

Nose had dark fruit including blackberry, a touch of black pepper, and a slightly dusty character as well. The tannins were definitely there but not too huge. Medium body. Somewhat acidic, there's a little bit of a zing on the palate. The only thing I didn't like was the occasional alcohol smell when swirling the wine.
