18 Feb New Côtes du Rhône Bargain!
This wine is named as an homage to the Boisson family’s second passion, blacksmithing. The term “caboche” is the name for the nails used on horse shoes. Of course, the family’s first love was winemaking, and that comes through in this tasty Cotes du Rhone, a bargain that over-delivers at this price!
2015 Domaine du Pére Caboche Côtes du Rhône
On Sale $12.99 (Full cases come sealed in wood!)
60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Carignan, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault. The color is ruby red with purple highlights. The nose is expressive, marked by aromas of fresh red fruits and raspberry coulis with hints of soft spices. There is a beautiful volume with notes of jammy fruits, spices and licorice in the mouth. The tannins are elegant and of great finesse. The finish is long.
Jean-Pierre Boisson, Winemaker
