2010 Rive Droite, Rive Gauche. Cotes du Rhone. France. 14.5%

Immediate impression of earthy mushrooms.

Gritty tannins. Moderate length and mouthfeel.

Sour cherries, iodine and rosemary. This is a meaty, savory wine. Mid weight.

For the price, this is an okay wine to have with food. Without food, the acid pokes out and becomes a bit hot on the palate.

Approx $19 from Swanbourne Cellars. Under screw cap

Tasted 15th September 2012

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
