2007 Perrin & Fils Vinsobres Les Cornuds Cotes du Rhone
|A really well assembled Cotes du Rhone and I’m a big fan; Nose is earthy, peppery; on the palate it’s packed with dark fruit, blackberry, a little licorice; medium in body; finish is not as spicy as you might expect, it’s clean and lingering. |
The wine is 65% Syrah and 35% Grenache. Great combo, nice grapes from a (relatively new) and somewhat still lesser known Rhone appellation.
Certainly more than I would expect from a bottle that was $15.79 at my Costco. If you like Rhones, this is the best $15 you’ve spent in a while. Definitely worth the small jump from the Perrin & Fils Villages.
