Domaine Sainte-Anne Cotes du Rhone, 2001
This is an old favorite that just keeps offering more pleasure as the years go by. Deep crimson with garnet tones developing at the rim. Beautiful spicy, floral, cherry smells. Very fragrant, as always, but increasingly complex. Smooth on the tongue. Ripe dark cherry fruit with complex spice and savory notes that dominate the finish. For less than $10, I have gotten more than a decade of pleasure. And a few more bottles to go.
