    A Cotes-du-Rhone by any other name would not taste as delicious and this, well this might be better. Bright Grenache fruit with garrigue and spice..

    This wine a great option for choosing an early drinking red. Planted on clay and limestone soils, the vines possess an average age of 30 years. Initial aromas of red fruit and raspberry, typical of a youthful Grenache-dominated wine. Along with the aromatics, there is an inherent freshness on the palate, supported by tannins discreet and supple. This easy drinking wine goes well with an assortment of food items; think cold cuts, grilled meats, and fresh cheeses.

    A wine with lots of cassis, kirsch, pepper, and even an intriguing floral note, the wine is medium to full-bodied , silky smooth, and a truly delicious, hedonistic and intellectually satisfying wine that is a remarkable bargain.

    What a fun wine, and perfect price point for the every day consumer. This blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan really shows just how tasty and easily approachable Rhone blends can be. Bring to a party, or share amongst friends, I'm sure no one will be disappointed.
