    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Saint-Esprit's deep color has a dark, plum-like hue. The nose is classical Syrah, with berry fruit, violet, licorice and spices. It has a full, rounded palate with delicate tannins. Saint-Esprit is a unique wine in the Cotes-du-Rhone appellation and can be paired with Provençale-style cuisine, game, stuffings and mixed grills.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Cotes du Rhone St.-Esprit is a real winner. It offers lots of Provencal herb notes interwoven with loamy, earthy, peppery, kirsch and black currant characteristics. This medium-bodied, delicious Cotes du Rhone ranks alongside some of the finest of the appellation.

    Deep ruby. Shows good complexity on the nose, offering red fruit and floral qualities with pungent olive and herb nuances. Spice-accented raspberry and cherry flavors show good depth and become more energetic with air. Closes on a gently sweet note, with good length and a late kick of cracked pepper.

    Decent for the price, but was honestly hoping for more. Dry mouth feel with medium tannins. I paired it with BBQ tri tip, which was just okay. A bold meat pasta may have been a better choice.
