"The 2006 Cotes du Rhone was made from 100% Syrah that was actually declassified wine from the estate vineyards in Gigondas blended with some stuff he buys from Vinsobres and Rasteau. This is dense ruby/purple, big, deep, and fruity, with loads of blackberry fruit.
It is not terribly complex at the moment, but mouthfilling, very supple-textured, and corpulent. This wine should drink nicely for 4-5 years."
