Other Reviews…..
The full range of exciting Southern Rhone aromas, from graphite to raw meat to black cherry, pour from the glass of this youthful wine. Concentrated and well structured, but already so accessible, thanks to the well-crafted, fine tannins, this is a standout wine in the humble category. Long, supple finish with savory and spicy notes. Drink or hold.

As to the reds, the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Maclura offers plenty of dark fruits, black olive, and peppery garrigue in its rich, mouth-filling, full-bodied style. It’s a classic, pleasure-bent 2019 to drink over the coming 3-5 years. Drink 2021-2026.
