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
