What a pleasant surprise this wine was, plucked from the bargain bin at K&L. This is a serious Cotes du Rhone. Deeply colored, extremely chewy texture. Penetrating nose shows dark berries, kirsch, and spiciness. Still very tannic but has the fruit and density to support the tannin. Certainly drinkable now with hearty food but I suspect it will be even better in a couple of years. - HK 2005-01-04
