Natalie's Score: 90/100
Stunning for the price! Full-bodied and richly layered and smooth with lots of fleshy black fruit and some smoke on the finish. Awesome party wine. Previous vintages of this wine have been awarded the Gold Medal at Concours Mondial de Bruxelles. This robust red is primarily made from the enticing Grenache grape. It features a long, spice inflected finish. It'll go the distance when you're playing a seemingly endless game of Monopoly.
Food pairings: crown rib roast, beef stew, roasted leg of lamb, burgers with blue cheese, meaty pasta, pizza.

|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
At $17, this wine is quite the value pick-up. Ripe black fruit, milk chocolate, game, garrigue, and a hint of white pepper. I'd draft it in the 2nd round of this year's best releases from the LCBO. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Good value Cotes du Rhone-Villages. Deep ruby. XD. Med+ body. Nice complexity. Aromas of strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, leather,eucalyptus,raisin, sweet spice, charred wood, vanilla, cloves.
Med+ grippy tannins. Flavours have aroma characteristics with added toffee,oak, black pepper, cranberry, cigar and black cherry.
Balanced and velvety.Drink now but has potential to age.Alcohol at 15% gives a little warming finish.
Pair with game meat, grilled meats, hearty stews

|Built around the Grenache grape, and often with Syrah playing a major role, the wines of Côtes du Rhône-Villages can be some of the most robust, mouthfilling and velvety-textured French reds out there. This one serves up big ripe fruit and chocolaty notions, and will suit flavourful foods Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.|
