    Opened 45-minutes before drinking. Clear, ruby color with the same color rim. Aromas of damp earth, plum and a milking barn on a winter morning that’s full of hot cows (just believe me if you have ever experienced it you will never forget that musky aroma). Juicy, rich, medium body and a 150-grit texture. Peppery plum, current and cherry flavors, fresh acidity and yummy leathery tannins. Than get ready for an explosive finish that’s packed with dark fruit, a perfect tannin grip and lots of black liquorice taste. WOW a EXCELLENT Côtes du Rhône at a price point every wine drinker should get excited about. We gave it a TastedOnline.com Quality wine at a Bargain price rating. A GREAT Cotes du Rhone blend we enjoyed and strongly recommend.
