Asda Extra Special Cotes du Rhone-Village 2011

Tasted 24/7/12, 14% ABV, synthetic cork closure. Another Asda 'special' and not a bad one at that at c. £6.99.
This is a co-operative wine and a blend of greanche, syrah and mourvedre. It's quite rich but with soft-ish tannins from the fine 2011 vintage. There's plenty of ripe berry fruits in the mouth, with a hint of white pepper and coffee on the finish. You could keep it longer, but frankly I'd drink it now. A good dinner party introduction or party wine. Great value for money. 15.5/20, from 2013
