2005 Domaine de Pierredon COTES DU RHONE (France)

A decently-made, but soul-less modern-style Rhone wine.

Dark black ruby color. Direct, mid-toned fruity nose -- plums, berries, and the barest hint of crushed rocks and spice. Round, medium-bodied and fruity in the mouth. Decent, clean finish. 86. Was $14 at Spec's Outlet on Westheimer at Montrose.

I must agree. Nice nose, but the acidity is just a bit to aggressive for a wine of this style. A few years in the bottle may help, but this is destined to be a decent, but lacking blend from southern France.
