The 2014 Cotes du Rhone from Domaine Roche has outstanding potential. A blend of 60% Grenache and 20% each of Syrah and Carignan, it’s a forward, jammy, rounded and deliciously quaffable effort that offers ample notes of red plums, jammy blackberries, dried spices and pepper. Drink it in its youth.
