2009 Reserve Grand Veneur Cotes Du Rhone

I went to Prima, a wine shop right on my walk home from the train and asked for a decadent, rich wine under $15.   And this wine definitely fit the bill.   Ripe raspberries practically pop out of the glass, and I smell some baking spices too.   This wine is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault.  Grenache tends to have lots of acidity, and this wine is no different – definite tart fruit on the midpalate and finish.   This wine is from France, but is made in a New World style…  Fruit forward and juicy!
