2007 Andezon Cotes Du Rhone---The Parade of Killer Values Continues

2007 was a great year for reds in the Rhone valley. Even low-priced entry level CdRs are popping. This one from D'Andezon is 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache from 60 year-old vines. Cherry and blackberry on the palate amidst scents of herbs, licorice and cocoa notes. Would match well with just about any meaty thing you can throw on the grill.
For drinking over the next few years. Another stellar value for $10 at Tower on Piedmont.

  3. I really like the Andezon and at $10 a pop you just can't beat it. Serious Rhone Syrah with big flavor... we often get this during the week when we are looking for something more substanial.

  4. Ed-That's very much the role it plays for us, too. A perfect Wed night wine that more than delivers at its price point.
