DSC032172010 was an amazing vintage in the Rhône, and this is an extraordinary value! Traditional CDP made by fourth-generation family winemakers. Complex aromas of cooked red fruits with hints of leather and tobacco. Pleasantly weighty on the palate, with fruit amplified by earth, spice and silky tannins. $38

015From an extraordinary vintage in the Rhône, this red shows ripe, spicy aromatics with loads of red berry notes. Cinnamon and blackberries dance on the palate to create a harmonious and complete package, with a long, fruit-driven finish that stays fresh and vibrant to the very end. Roast pork loin and baked apples would suit this stunner nicely. $49
