Critical Acclaim:

James Suckling 91 Points
This is pure syrah from both sides of the southern Rhône and has very rich dark cherries and sweet ripeness to the palate. Good depth and detail here. Juicy and long. Quite plush, too.

Pristine black cherry and raspberry flavors are accented by hints of green herbs and bramble in this full-bodied but invigorating red. It’s delightfully easy drinking but nuanced and peppery. Ripe, integrated tannins linger elegantly through a long finish. Enjoy now–2024.

The 2018 Cotes du Rhone is 100% Syrah, sourced from the Gard (on the right bank of the Rhône) and Vinsobres (left bank, higher elevation). Violets, black olives and cassis and blueberry flavors provide terrific varietal expression in a medium to full-bodied package framed by silky tannins. Depending on your local pricing (I've seen it for as little as $12.99 or as much as $20), it should be a terrific value.

Lively savory, lavender, cherry and black currant notes mix in this friendly, open-knit wine, which reveals a tug of dark earth at the end. Drink now through 2020.
