2017 Les Vignerons Estezargues Les Grandes Vignes Rouge - Cotes du Rhone, France
Garnet in the glass with shimmering highlights. Elegant notes of smoky red fruit, violet, sweet herb and a note of baking chocolate. The palate is rich with ripe cherry and berry flavors, and a mineral note that is followed by supple acidity and velvety tannins. This is a very expressive red with a great concentration of fruit that is never overly extracted. The wine finishes with floral notes and a dash of black pepper. Works wonders with grilled chicken and pork, cold cuts, or simply by itself.
