Roger Sabon Cotes du Rhone 2011
We can't really think of a better Cotes du Rhone producer in the "modern" (read: sexy) style than Sabon. So we were completely stoked to have stumbled on a few cases of this no-brainer wine at a tremendously good price. To get this much power, unctuous, rich fruit, and seamless texture at a price that is less than a decent car wash, well, SIGN US UP. This is what to drink tonight with what everyone loves in the middle of winter: roasts and soups and pasta - you know! You'll be shocked how much complexity is here: blueberry, raspberry, sweet red licorice, crushed sweet herbs and a beautiful, round, ripe texture. Amazingly delicious at a never-to-be-seen again price.....!
Free ground shipping on 6 or more bottles.
Upfront, perfumed, and loaded with sweet Grenache character, the 2011 Roger Sabon Côtes du Rhône (80% Grenache, 10% Cinsault, and 10% Syrah) is a perfect example of the vintage and shows loads of strawberry, , licorice, flowers, and wild herbs aromas and flavors, as well as a medium bodied, clean, supple, and ready to go palate feel. There are no hard edges, it shows solid purity of fruit, and best of all, it makes you want to pour another glass. Enjoy bottles over the coming 2-4 years.
