There are an impressive 4.5 million bottles of the 2016 Cotes du Rhone, a ripe, silky wine that should bring pleasure to thousands of consumers. Cherries and raspberries mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate adds nuances of cola, tree bark and spice. Often available at retail for under $15 per bottle, it represents a terrific value. Drink now-2023.
Wine Tasting Notes Deep and dark red, shiny. Fresh fruits with red berries and spices on the nose. The palate is full, round and racy with rounded and smooth tannins. A full-bodied, rich and intensly aromatic wine. Full with a long finish and plenty of elegance and finesse due to the well balanced tannins and fruit.
