Compelling Grenache-dominated Rhône blend. Compact and powerful but layered with blue and bright red fruit, smoke and peppery spice. Will benefit from aging but wow so nice. — 14 days ago

Meridion Côtes do Rhône Red Rhône Blend

I suspect this is the 2017 vintage, but there’s no vintage year on the label. This is an in-your-face Cote the Rhône blend. It’s as intense as any Napa or Paso Robles Rhône blend. Leather and black cherries on the nose. Lots of red fruit on the front — with a dense tannic structure that rises smoothly to the top of the palate — and it crests in a prickly wave that has lots of puckery high notes on a dark velvety background. It’s as about as subtle as a velvet Elvis painting. And to make this wine even more deliciously absurd, at the back of the palate, it whomps you with an intense calcaire finish! I really like this wine, but, if you’re interested in the more restrained sensibilities of a traditional French Cote du Rhône, this wine might be offensive and plebeian to you (In a pushy sort of Californian sort of way). But I’m afraid I’m finishing this bottle off on my own and in one sitting. Shame on me! — 7 days ago

Domaine Auguste Clape

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 1995

Wanted to open up something to thank Pierre and Clare. Herbaceous, dark red fruit, lightly smoked meat and floral notes on the nose. Black licorice and peppery spice on the palate. This guy is still going strong. 100% Syrah 100% whole cluster. — 7 days ago
