    December 21, 2013 - Dark cherry red and mostly cherry on the nose. A very nice palate with lots of sweet black fruits with some pepper and earth. A smooth food wine that went down easy. One of the better CDRs that I have tried. A real nice wine for the price.

    January 15, 2013 - This experience was more similar to laast encounter. Mellow enough to sip on its own. Second day was even better.

    February 1, 2012 - Seems to have lost some of its body since I tasted in 2010. May have cellared too long.

    January 24, 2012 - Sweet raspberry and a hint of complex herbs on the nose. Juicy berry body with some chocalety flavors. Well balanced and very good.

    July 13, 2010 - Medium dark clear red. The secondary notes are coming on. Earth and chalk with lots of raspberry and pepper. Better then it's AOC. Nice slightly sweet entry and finish. Excellent.

    (Domaine de Cristia Cotes du Rhone) #2; COLOR-dark; NOSE-distinct plum; hint of strawberry; a gorgeous rose petal component; a tangerine cites component is nice; PALATE-this wine is pretty solid; I like the fruit; it's very vibrant; it's aggressive -- really attacks the palate; dark fruit; violets and lilac; I really enjoy the intensity of this wine; more oomph than most Cotes du Rhone; nice QPR; RP-87; GV-87
