    Winemaker's Notes:

    Dark ruby color, with purple reflections. Intense nose of macerated cherries and licorice. In the mouth the wine is full-bodied with a generous attack, a pleasant freshness and elegant tannins. This well-balanced wine shows a typical expression of southern Rhône wine with thyme and rosemary aftertaste.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Youthfully vibrant, with a delicious core of plum and raspberry fruit bursting forth, though there's length, buried minerality and racy acidity to keep it fresh and balanced for modest cellaring.

    The 2009 Perrin et Fils Cotes du Rhone-Villages ratchets up the intensity level. A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, it exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue, black cherry, black currant, lavender, pepper and Provencal herb characteristics, medium body, pure fruit, silky tannins and no hard edges. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.

    Second Label Wine (2/21/2011)
    The Perrin & Fils Cotes-du-Rhone Villages might be called a cousin of the Beaucastel, because it is produced by the same people, the Perrin Family, using the same viticultural and winemaking techniques. More importantly for people who don’t want to drop $26 for the Beaucastel, this is also a great bottle of wine at $12. Rather than considering this a second wine of a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, it would be more appropriate to call this a second wine of Perrin & Fils Gigondas or Vacqueyras due to the blend of approximately 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah. This wine is deep ruby in color and its primary profile is dark fruit like black currant, black cherry and plum. You’ll also find the signature pepper, clove and spice of Rhone red wines. It’s well balanced with soft tannins and a long finish. While it doesn’t have near the complexity of the Beaucastel, this is a great value. Food Pairing Suggestions: Not to be redundant, but this Cotes-du-Rhone Villages would work lovely with braised short ribs. You might also try braised rabbit, stewed or grilled lamb, duck confit or my dark horse pick – venison sausage.

    This really is a great deal - 5 starts for what this wine offers for the price - it is typical Cotes-du-Rhone with lots of ripe berry fruit, a bit of herbal (think lavendar and rosemary) notes and spice. Smooth and lingering on the palate. It's a perfect everyday red. Totally versatile with food - great for summer BBQ or winter roast.

    I ordered 4 bottles because I've had this before and it's very good. This time we got a bad batch in that 2 of the wine bottles had their corks break as I was pulling out the cork. I'm able to salvage the wine by pushing the corks down into the bottles and using a coffee filter, strainer and funnel over a decanter. Wine is still good though I'm not sure what they've changed with their corks that makes uncorking such a problem now.
