Kermit Lynch Côtes du Rhône 2009
The growing success we have enjoyed over the last three vintages is proof enough that the KL Côtes du Rhône fits both the taste profile and quality standards that our customers have come to expect. Since 1929, this winery has been bringing local vignerons together from the outlying areas of Avignon in the Southern Rhône to produce delicious wines that epitomize the region’s complex terroirs. Kermit works closely with winemaker Jean-François Pasturel to develop the blend. Pasturel is thrilled to be able to have the chance to produce a Côtes du Rhône he does not have to filter to death. It is his tête de cuvée, his pride and joy.
Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan. Pleasant strawberry nose, long finish of roast, light, dry. [From "Red Blends" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 21 July 2012.]
A slight disappointment, considering how much I love Kermit Lynch and that this was the last wine of the night, which almost inevitably gets the unfair advantage of my mood having improved with each glass...
Light cherry and red fruit flavors, long lingering tannins, hint of oak, pleasant overall.
