This lovely value from the Rhone Valley comes from Les Trois Couronnes, who also produce wines from Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape.

------

We get red and dark berry fruit on the nose with classic Rhone white pepper and earth.  The palate bursts with fruit: blackberries, red plums and black cherries, as well as dried Provencal herbs, black and white pepper. Earthy minerality and chalky tannins finish, smoothed out by about a half hour of air.
