Rive droite, rive gauche Côtes du Rhône 2013

This is a very gluggable Côtes-du-Rhône that will provide a lot of joy for just under $20 per bottle.  A blend of 60% grenache, 30% syrah and 10% mourvedre and cinsaut it has juby aromatics of cherry, strawberry and pastilles.  The palate is towards full bodied with cherry and spice notes, and good length.  Good
