This non-vintage Rhone blend is always a good value.
Sultry, nearly saturated black ruby. Earthy, gravelly nose with ripe, low-toned raspberryish fruit. Soft, mouthfilling flavors feature lots of minerally stoniness and bone dry dark berry fruit, along with a bit of scorched earth. Little bit of tannin in the finish. Good balance and relatively full body. Excellent choice for a very good weekday dinner wine. Solid B. Imported by The Stacole Company. Was about $10 at Spec's on Smith.
