(2005 Vintage) The 2005 Cote Rotie has a deep ruby/purple color and a beautiful, intense bouquet of black olives, a touch of pain grille, cassis, cherries, and incense. The wine is medium to full-bodied, a classic display of Cote Rotie that will probably benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and last for 12-15 years.
International Wine Cellar(2003 Vintage) Medium ruby. Lush, ripe and rich on the nose, with scents of blackberry, cassis, cherry cola and roasted coffee. Serious, concentrated flavors of dark cherry and smoky blackcurrant are tinged with an intriguing note of garrigue Vibrant and long on the finish, with fine, dusty tannins.
