My search for the most value for the Rhone dollar continues
It is exceptionally difficult to find a 19 dollar wine that approaches the depth of this baby.
Clos St. Jean CDP '06
Cheaper than most CDRs, the '06 bail out continues to rain down on retail pavement. The nose is a pure distillation of black cherry liqueur, w/ a juicy, mouth-filling flush of bittersweet chocolate & sweet earth rounding out the palate. There's enough herbal bite to keep the lush, dark fruit flavors in check, paving the way for a fresh finish, 92+ points.
