Deep dark red and shiny dress. Nose of black fruits marked by notes of spices. Full-bodied wine, full and racy. Tannins rounded, very coated but present in the mouth. This wine is distinguished by its size, heat and aromatic intensity. Complete wine, good persistence. Elegance and finesse due to a nice balance between tannins and fruits.

Blend: 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre

There are an impressive 4.5 million bottles of the 2016 Cotes du Rhone, a ripe, silky wine that should bring pleasure to thousands of consumers. Cherries and raspberries mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate adds nuances of cola, tree bark and spice. Often available at retail for under $15 per bottle, it represents a terrific value.

Very brambly, rich and attractive tobacco, red and dark fruit and wild herbs. The palate has richness and an attractive feel with great core flesh and balance. The combination of quality, good value and accessibility here make this quite unique. Drink now.
