Les Trois Couronnes Rose $9.00
Leon Perdigal Cote du Rhone $12.00
With a ruby red robe, this wine features a bouquet of red berries with hints of pepper and garrigue herbs. On the palette, the red fruit flavors carry over with spicy, well integrated tannins on a medium body.
More of a robust Southern Rhone wine than you’d expect -- this 70% Grenache 30% Syrah Cotes du Rhone has notes of leather, red fruit, and spice on the nose. The taste is similar to the aroma with a little aftertaste of plum, violets, and nutmeg. A unique wine to try out!
A blend of Grenach, Syrah, and Carignan from the Rhone Valley, France. Spice dominates the nose as well as brick, cherries, blackberries and cassis. Make sure to have with some of our heavier cheeses and meats.
Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone $15.00
Kermit Lynch helped craft this wine from a co-op in the Southern Rhone. Undergoing natural fermentation, aged in concrete vats, this wine showcases generous black fruits, a gentle spiciness and herbaceous thyme and rosemary. Juicy with chewy tannins, a textbook Cotes du Rhone that can work with spicy food quite handily.
Domaine du Couron $15.00
All you would want from a viognier, right here! Luscious oily texture, herbaceous aromas with a subtle cilantro background. Round mouthfeel, tropical fruits on the palate and shining acidity.
Domaine Lafond Tavel $16.00
This richly colored Rose from Tavel opens with a mild wet stone and gentle strawberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral infused strawberry and gentle red raspberry blend with a hint of white pepper. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. I would pair this very nice Rose with grilled salmon this summer.
Domaine de la Cote $16.00
Beautiful and complex Cotes Du Rhone from the village site of Valreas. Black cherry, thyme, subtle medicinal quality (in a good way). Medium body, smooth tannin, an excellent food wine. A great price for a higher tier C.D.R.
Tavel is the only appellation in the Southern Rhone solely dedicated to rose production. Grenache is playing the lead role in this blend along with clairette, mouvedre, and syrah. Cherry, strawberry, blood orange, lavender and a chalky minerality. A balance of bold and grace perfectly integrated in the glass.
Chateau de Bord $19.00
Just to the west of the infamous Chateauneuf-du-pape lies the village of Laudub from where this wine hails. Originally planted during the Roman rule, now owned by the Brotte family, tis wine gives bright raspberry flavors with an earthy, clay profile along with fennel and sage. A gritty texture as if your tasting the land it comes from. Single vineyard, delicious and affordable!
Cuilleron le vignes d'a cote $21.00
Chave Circa $29.00
Prolific winemaker, Jean-Louis Chave, known for his amazing Hermitage, brings us an equally amazing white blend from southern Rhone. A Roussanne, Marsanne blend, its big, fleshy, full of texture. Honeydew, apple peel, hints of tropical fruits, white flowers and baking spices. To grab a bottle by this historic producer is a rare find!
As far as geography is concerned, a thin line separates the hill of Hermitage from the surrounding Crozes-Hermitage. However, a big leap in price point separates the two as well. This Crozes offers everything you'd want in a Hermitage without breaking the bank. A savory, meaty Syrah, violets, black pepper, red fruits, soft tannins, just straight delicious.
Chapoutier La Bernardine CDP $44.00
Almost all Grenache, this nose is intense spice and ripe red cherry and raspberry. A little time open and it transforms and softens. Try to count the number of aromas and flavors, you'll never stop. And probably at the best price in the state here in our little shop.
