Domaine Sainte Anne Cotes du Rhone, 2006
This 10-year-old CDR from Domaine Sainte Anne seems to have changed very little from when it was released. Vibrant cherry/berry aromas, a full mid-palate and long, pleasing finish. It is still very fruit oriented and has not yet taken on the secondary traits I love so much in the 2004 and 2001 Sainte-Anne Cotes du Rhone wines. I like the freshness and youth almost as much as I like the maturity of its older siblings.
