Perrin Reserve Cotes du Rhone, 2009

Perrin family wines always stick closely to Southern Rhone traditions, and this is a Cotes du Rhone classic, although maybe with a wee bit of oak seasoning. Deep ruby color. Black and red fruits. Has lost its red berry youthfulness and is becoming deeper and more concentrated. Dark berries/cherries with cassis and black pepper. Reminds me a lot of  Vinsobres or maybe even a young Bois du Boursan Chateauneuf du Pape. Has tannic structure to allow it to age even more.

This wine is fairly widely available for about $10 a bottle.
