Predominantly Grenache-blend with smaller amounts of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault - all working to fill in the cherry fruit of the Grenache with blackberry fruits and peppers. Full-bodied, rustic with bright acidity.
The fleshy 1999 is an excellent, dense ruby-colored effort displaying copious quantities of cherries, earth, and pepper in its medium to full-bodied personality. It is a fruit bomb to enjoy over the next 3-4 years.
The impressive, deep ruby-colored 2000 Côtes du Rhône Reserve possesses loads of black cherry and currant fruit, medium body, and admirable structure. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.
The deep ruby/purple-colored 2001 Cotes du Rhone Reserve includes more Syrah in the blend than the 2000. It possesses excellent acidity as well as a ripe, long finish. This negociant is becoming a terrific source for value-priced southern Rhone wines that are faithful to their appellations of origin.
The 2000 Côtes du Rhône Reserve possesses straightforward, sweet black cherry fruit, medium body, and a pleasant, easygoing personality. This negociant is becoming a terrific source for value-priced southern Rhône wines that are faithful to their appellations of origin.
The 2001 Cotes du Rhone Reserve is a blend of 50% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvedre, all tank-fermented and aged. This medium-bodied, 50,000-case cuvee is loaded with strawberry and cherry fruit, pepper, and spice as well as good underlying acidity. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
This light, fun wine starts off with aromas of bright, bouncy cherries and peaches. Then it continues that theme in the mouth, with crunchy fresh fruit flavors of stone fruit, picking up some spice and mineral nuances on the finish. Drink now-2008.
