This is not your everyday Cotes du Rhone. Firm, classy structure; has the feel of a Chateauneuf though not quite the depth. Ripe cherry and strawberry fruit, firm tannins, excellent balance of fruit and structure. Will only get better. I'm finding that I sometimes prefer top-flight, fruit-filled Cotes du Rhones to the more expensive Chateuneufs. - HK 2004-11-09
