Ogier Caves des Papes Héritages Côte du Rhône Rouge 2015, France

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Nice nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, green vegetables, tobacco leaf, dark coffee, earth, light barnyard and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, currants, earth, vanilla, vegetables, light bell pepper, coffee, tobacco leaf, wood, spices and peppercorn.

Medium finish with round tannins and spices.

This is a nice Côte du Rhône red blend. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Drinking nicely now and in the next few years.

A good food wine too. I paired it with a cheese plate, fruits and crackers.

I had it 6 months ago and it is already drinking nicer.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$14.
