The Wine Advocate Côtes du Rhône Grande Réserve 2015

Readers looking for a terrific value from the Southern Rhone should check out the 2015 CDR Grande Réserve. Made from a 60/40 split of Grenache and Syrah, it has terrific Provencal character as well as lots of black cherry and blackberry fruits, spice and leather aromatics, medium-bodied richness and a silky texture. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years.
