jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Côtes du Rhône (65% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 5% Marselan brought up all in tank) is a totally charming, delicious, fruit-loaded effort from one of the great vintages in the Southern Rhône Valley. Spiced cherries, peppery herbs, and earthy notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, fruit-loaded effort that has sweet tannins and loads to love. You can also love the price, and it’s a solid value."

wine enthusiast 87 pts"While quiet on the nose, this Grenache-based blend offers ripe black cherry and plum flavors, offset by bright acidity and a hint of savory earth and game. It's elegant but easy-drinking, with a moderately long finish. Anna Lee C. Iijima"

wine enthusiast 88 pts"Leaner, slightly savory wines like this stand out in a ripe, powerful vintage like 2015. Black-cherry and blackberry flavors are ripe but muted by tones of earth and dried herb. It's a medium-bodied, balanced wine with ripe, persistent tannins anchoring the finish. - Anna Lee C. Iijima"

wa300"Checking in as a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone is a floral, red and black berry, spice and sappy herb-scented effort that has medium-bodied richness, juicy acidity and a charming, quaffable style. Drink this solid, bistro styled red over the coming couple of years. - Jeb Dunnuck"

bti"Ruby color. Aromas of black cherry, raspberry, spiced plum, and toasty vanilla with a round, tangy, dry medium-to-full body and a polished, complex, medium-length juicy plum, black raspberry, blackberry, and brandied cherries finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak. Juicy and round with jammy cherry and plum, a touch of spice and chewy, delicious tannin structure."
