DrinkRhône Cairanne Les Hautes Rives red 2020

dark red; the bouquet works well, offers stewed plum fruits from the Grenache, has a neat togetherness, comes with a hint of cocoa. The palate serves cooked plum fruits, a stone fruit emphasis, notes of garrigue late on, shows Cairanne in a true light. The finish develops thrust, is well rounded. It’s a shapely wine that gives relaxed pleasure, won’t be that long lived given the maturity of the fruit.
