Community Tasting Note

  • grossie Likes this wine: 90 points

    October 24, 2018 - I bet the ratings on CT suffer from negative bias. I drink a lot of rhone reds, and I look for the inexpensive gems, I think the Southern Rhone represents some of the best $15-$25 values around. This one hits that mark well. Unmistakably Grenache based with a candied quality but it has a serious side as well. Mourvedre provides some amazing forest scents, like exotic wet pine with a truffle hidden somewhere. It drinks so easily- grenache candy, Syrah depth. Maybe a bit hot overall, but it's still so young, I bet it will mellow. If there's any left I'm buying a bunch at Costco, I'll stash a few for fun and drink the rest in the near term. A great value. I'm not sure who made this, but it's well made, a proper Village wine.
