"A blend of 90% Syrah (40-year old vines) and 10% Grenache (60-year old vines), the tank-fermented and aged 2007 Cotes du Rhone exhibits sweet blackberry and cassis fruit interwoven with notions of spring flowers, licorice, and road tar. It possesses a lovely texture, crisp acids (a characteristic of this vintage), medium to full body, and a long, smooth finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
One of the great values Eric Solomon has long sourced from a well-known cooperative south of Chateauneuf du Pape is Domaine d'Andezon's Cotes du Rhone, and more recently, their 100% old vine Grenache cuvee called La Granacha Signargues."
I thought this wine was an excellent example of its region. I bought only 1 bottle to try and will plan to buy more.
Earthy & Spicy
Like all Cotes du Rhones, this is a great value for the price!
It suits me well. Very full body, and large spectrum of divergent flavors keeping my interest no matter how often I drink it.
Pretty good. very fruity. Light wine
I absolutely love Pinot Noir and Cote du Rhone. I like a big fruit, velvety smooth mouthfeel. I recently bought this bottle at wine.com and am getting ready to purchase more of it. It is a wonderful value with primarily Syrah (vs. Grenanche), which is my preference in a CDR. Stock up while you can!!
Just not that great. I've had other wines from this region that were much more pleasant to drink. This wine was too bold for my tastes; it felt heavy and had a harsh bite to it that I didn't like. As for an easy drinking wine, it didn't do it for me.
