Perrin & Fils Côtes du Rhône Reserve 2007

Member Review by barri0s1872:

overly oaked. medium bodied, large fruit (apples, pears, etc on the nose) the mouthfeel in the end leaves you feeling too much alcohol but it's not cloying.

6-20-09: This wine really shines if you open it about 6 hrs. before you drink it. Trader Joe’s has it for $6.99 on the West Coast so it maybe even cheaper on the East Coast. It’s a great bargain at $6.99 and if you can get it for less it’s an out and out steal.

Was on the road seeking an evening-in-the-hotel wine and found this CdR in Trader Joes, $7. A little closed on opening but gave it 30-60 mins to breathe and wasn't disappointed. Nose of [lanolin or stinky sock or barnyard, got to sort these out], lavender, and sweet floral with hints of cooling spice and dust. In the mouth nice balance of acid, tannin, and (after decanting) sour ripe fruit (plum, red berries, possibly cherry) with licorice and garrigue tastes (closest would be tarragon, maybe thyme) with a bittersweet finish of the herbs, some wood, and fruit. Dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannins medium or higher. Excellent QPR in my opinion, tested at USD7. Did you know that one of the early value propositions of Trader Joe's was good QPR wine for middle-class Californians?

After a two days under refrigeration (but not vacu-corked) this wine just amplified wonderfully with richer fruit, dusty scrubland, and with pleasant tannic oak in the finish. Not a CNdP but really quite good esp. for the tariff USD. Upgrading my score and will seek out another bottle probably.

Non-descript red fruits with a touch of oak. Very smooth after some aeration. Good everyday drinking wine.

Good. Light body, fairly well balanced, slightly tannic, fruitty, somewhat sweet with a bad after taste.

External Review

The 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Perrin Reserve may be the finest wine yet made under this moniker. This sells for a whopping $12 a bottle. A blend of essentially equal parts Syrah and Grenache it offers a deep ruby/purple hue along with sweet blackberry black currant char licorice and smoky herb notes. Drink this dense Provencal-styled seductive lush 2007 over the next 3–4 years.

External Review

A round easy style with a dusting of grilled herb over the open-knit red and black cherry fruit. There’s a stony hint on the finish which fills out nicely in the glass. Grenache Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now.

External Review

Bursting with cherry and strawberry aromas this Rhône red packs a peppery punch. Subtly integrated fruit embraces an underlying earthiness that rounds out the finish beautifully.
