Cotes du Rhone Cypress Cuvee Kermit Lynch & Louis Barroul 91swj 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Deep violet, with a dark core. Decadent aromas of cherry pie, macerated sour cherries, autumn leaves, oiled leather and white pepper. Spicy flavors of tart cherries, fruit punch, and leather, with dried herb notes coming through on the finish. Good acidity. The tannins are refined but evident on the long finish. 14% alc. Drink now-2012...91" SWJ 12/10 The “Cypress Cuvée” and “Sunflower Cuvée” are both made by the same vigneron, Louis Barroul. Southern Rhône fans might recognize Barroul’s name because he is the winemaker at Château St. Cosme. The Gigondas style is evident throughout this wine: earthiness, dark fruit on the palate, infiltrated by an aroma of elegant violets.
