Winemaker's Notes

"The 2004 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albions is a terrific buy. Made largely from Cairanne, it is a blend of 50% Syrah and the rest small quantities of Grenache, Carignan, Mourvedre, and Clairette (a white grape). It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, a flamboyant, exotic bouquet of red and black fruits intermixed with flowers and peaches, ripe, medium-bodied flavors, and loads of fruit. Enjoy this hedonistic Cotes du Rhone over the next several years."
