SUPER RICH MEDITERRANEAN RED! 4.5 STARS
The Cellier des Dauphins vineyards lie in the Rhône Valley, France, at the foothills of the Southern Alps. In these terroirs, sun-drenched vines swaying in the southern breeze, grow the renowned grape varieties that have made the Côtes du Rhône famous: Syrah, Grenache, Viognier and many others regional grapes.
This rich red, ruby coloured wine, has dark plum, spice, violets and berry aromas which fill the nose. On the palate, the luscious red berry fruit and soft white pepper flavours are evident, with a silky mouthfeel and soft acidity providing excellent balance. The upfront fruit, and long lasting flavours make this Cotes du Rhone incredibly appealing.
Enjoy this delicious Mediterranean red with antipasto, cured meats, goats cheese and capers. 12.5% abv. Fantastic value under $25.
