Wine Review: This bright red colored wine from Cotes du Rhone opens with a light leather and gentle cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavors profile is a tasty mild mineral infused blueberry with notes of oak and black cherry. The finish is dry and its well managed tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine is very food friendly and would pair well with wild boar Bolognese. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
