Vivino Profile


Aaron: Light blueberry nose with lots of floral, violet undertones.  The flavor was mostly light berries with some leafy green branches which added some complexity but it wasn’t very ‘interesting’.  This is a lighter bodied wine if you don’t want something too full.  88 points

Teri: This Cotes du Rhone blends together flavors of cherry, herbs, and minerals with underlying hints of oak from start to finish. You will smell red berries and pepper on the nose, paralleled by similar pepper and oak on the finish. Smooth tannins and good body with flavors that will stand up to meat dishes and red sauces. 88 points
