    I first tasted this awesome little Rhone moments after the bottle was opened, and was immediately impressed. Over the following hour, it only gained more depth and character. The nose is an intensely herbal experience, brambley, with notes of black tea and wild mountain fruit. I smell breeze wafting through a dew-covered Southern Rhone countryside-- wet earth, fragrant sage and lavender. The finish is long and pleasing, with silky, well-integrated tannin. This is an absolute stunner for under 15, and a far more serious wine than your average entry-level Rhone blend.

    One of the best Cotes-du-Rhones I've tried this fall! What a lovely surprise. This wine is far more weighty than its modest price point suggests. Supple and rich on the palate, it has intensely layered aromatics of cedar, blueberry, bramble, clove and light black pepper spice. The palate is silky, but with enough structure to bolster the exuberant fruit, and make it a great match for grilled meats. I'd highly recommend trying a bottle of this, as it could easily become a new house red!

    From the moment I brought the glass to my nose I knew I had something special here. This wine drinks like a wine 2-3 times the price with ease and if you're looking for a case-worthy wine to purchase this holiday season this should be your first choice. The nose is a gorgeous mixture of spice, dried herbs, berry and game aromas. The palate deftly blends berry, spice, earth, minerals and crunchy tannins on an explosive yet somehow balanced palate. This amazing value is the perfect example of how incredible the 2016 vintage in the Rhone Valley is and you owe it to yourself to grab at least a few bottles of this wonderful elixir.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2022
