Tasting Notes

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jan/Feb 09: "Medium red. Spicy, inviting bouquet of strawberry and redcurrant, with sexy notes of potpourri and cola. Sappy, finely etched red berry flavors are deepened by cola and sassafras qualities. Very complex Cotes du Rhone with excellent finishing clarity and thrust." 90 points Robert Parker: "The 2006 Fonsalette Cotes du Rhone exhibits meaty, herbal, tapenade, pepper, animal fur, and damp earth-like notes. It is soft, round, lush, and best consumed over the next 10+ years." (10/08) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Very stylish, with elegant mulled red cherry, sandalwood and floral notes backed by a long, mineral-filled finish. A lingering hint of shiso leaf adds more length, with solid acidity. Drink now through 2014." (08/10)
