J. Vidal-Fleury Red Rhone Blend Côtes du Rhône 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant garnet red color with red fruits and spices on the nose. The mouth reveals rounded tannins, courtesy of the stay in French oak barrels. This is a warm, full-bodied wine with an uncommon and lasting aromatic intensity. Excellent with red meat (beef) and white meat (veal, pork), pizza, beef stew, and cheeses.

This wine has a nice deep garnet color, with enough transluceny to see flashes of light through it when the light hits it right. Very pretty. It's nose presents charcoal and smoke with a slightly spicy aroma. At first you taste a spicy strawberry with a touch of smoke. It doesn't last long but it leaves behind a touch of strawberry. This is a smooth wine without a lot of tannins. I personally think that this would be great paired with cheeses or lamb. I also think that this is a great value as it can be found around $12 per bottle.

I like it; nice body and lots of different flavors going on in there. Price is right too; a good wine to keep on hand.

I liked this cote, as it was smooth for a heavier body wine. Goes great with company as well.

An affordable Rhone wine that's good by the glass, not overwhelming without food.

I think we are starting to see how wine can age without exposure to air through tree-bark closures. 5 years in a bottle with synthetic cork yields a wine with softened tannins but without the toffee/sherry oxidation we almost take for granted in wines aged with traditional corks. My bottle today showed some funk (leathery, barnyard-y maybe Brett) but no oxidation, either in taste or color. No bricking at edges at all and still has the fresh (minus the funk!) fruit from three years ago. Very nice wine for the price and also a poster child for synthetic corks, at least until screw caps are completely accepted.
