Deep ruby-red. Smoke-accented cherry, dark berries and licorice on the perfumed nose, which takes on succulent floral and herb nuances with air. Smooth, concentrated and gently sweet, offering mineral- and spice-accented black raspberry, cherry and violet pastille flavors and a spicy jolt of cracked pepper. Finishes supple, sweet and quite long, with harmonious tannins and lingering florality. Drinking window: 2021 - 2027

Juicy red berries, spring flowers, and hints of peppered game all emerge from the 2018 Côtes Du Rhône Mon Coeur, which is medium-bodied and has a pure, elegant texture, silky tannins, and a clean finish. This classy, balanced Côtes Du Rhône has loads to love, and it should keep nicely for 4-6 years as well.

The Côtes du Rhône ‘Mon Coeur’ is a blend of four distinct terroir located in and around Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Though the blend varies year to year, it is roughly 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache. Vine age is between 20-60 years." - Winery
