Lightly firm, with good cherry, warm stone and grilled herb notes that stay focused through the bright finish. Drink now.

A sensational bargain, the 2009 Perrin et Fils Cotes du Rhone Reserve red is composed of 60% Grenache (from the estate vineyards at Prebois), 20% Syrah (from the estate vineyards in Vinsobres), and 20% Mourvedre. It offers lots of black cherry fruit, underbrush, licorice, pepper, and spice notes in a medium-bodied, richly fruity style with no hard edges. Their 2008 was a surprisingly good effort, but the 2009 is slightly riper and bigger

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.

The 2007 Cotes du Rhone Reserve red (60% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre) possesses beautiful crunchy, juicy, blackberry and cherry fruit as well as hints of underbrush, pepper, and black cherries. Medium-bodied and silky-textured, it is ideal for drinking over the next 3-4 years.

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.

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.

A real sleeper of the vintage is the 2006 Perrin et Fils Reserve Cotes du Rhone, which comes from their vineyards in Grand Pre and Vinsobres. A blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, the wine displays excellent black cherry fruit intermixed with some truffle, roasted herb, licorice, and spice. It has excellent freshness, an invigorating, rich mid-palate, and good acidity and spice in the finish. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
