After doing a little research, I found that this specific Côtes du Rhône is a private-label offering from a well-known importer of French wines, Kermit Lynch. This wine is a culmination of grapes and growers all hand-selected by Kermit from sources he has established over the last 30 years, the final product being a wonderful blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mouvedre. Rich and bright, a fairly translucent ruby red wine, with a hint of brick red around the edges. So far I’m impressed. The smell was very smooth, floral, aromatic and spicy. It had an amazing warm sent of a bread bakery and ripe jammy dark fruit; truly amazing aromas. The wine’s taste was able to expand upon the smell with the additions of wonderful almond cake undertones, that were actually very apparent through the body and finish of the wine. And the dark fruits, blackberry and cherry, combined the big spicy essence of the syrah grape. The influence of the Grenache (one of my favorite stand-alone grapes) was noticeable, resulting in soft tannins and bright red fruit, which reign in the bigger Syrah and Cinsault grapes. It seems rare to find the complexity and confidence resulting from four beautifully blended grapes in a such a reasonably priced wine, but here it is. my blog: http://corksandcaftans.wordpress.com/category/corks/

Had this wine by a campfire on an overnight hike in the Taconics, and when you drink on a hike, everything tastes better. That said, I found this wine to be extremely pleasing to drink, with the true varietal spiciness and body I love in more expensive Rhones such as Gigondas and especially Chateauneufs. It's often hard to find the true smell and taste of Rhone terroir in lower priced CDR (I almost never find them in Guigal for example) and if you are looking for that in a good value wine, I'd recommend this. Will be trying the 2007 as well. Lynch is a highly respected importer.
