This has a juicy feel, with ample anise, plum sauce and toasted spice hints backed by a good graphite edge on the finish. Drink now. 2,400 cases made.
A sleeper selection, the 2011 Cotes du Rhone is a tank-aged blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre. A delicious, fruity, soft, ripe effort that is already in bottle, it has nearly the weight of the Chateauneuf du Pape, which is not surprising given the location of the vineyard.
