2004 Ortas Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau Prestige (France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau)

The nose has plenty of raspberry and wild-berry fruit with a touch of earthiness. Across the palate lots of dark berry flavors, vanilla, tobacco and a good dose of minerality. At $19 it’s a value  for Cotes du Rhone. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.
