My Rating 87 Points.  
Price $15.

For my 600th review on this blog, I chose this wonderful Cote du Rhone red wine.

Dark ruby in color with a dark purple rim.

Intense nose of blackberries, currants, plums, cherries, earth, dirt, licorice, leather, oak, vanilla, smoke, raspberries, black pepper and spices.

Medium to full bodied, with medium acidity and great legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate, with cherries, blueberries, raspberries, black currants, earth, forest floor, black olives, leather, oak, vanilla, pencil lead, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and black pepper.

A very enjoyable CDR. Nicely balanced with a great mouth feel, finesse and finish. Enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with chicken flatbread.

100% Syrah grapes grown on limestone sands and red clay.

Needs 1 hour to properly open up, but good right out of the bottle too.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
