A tasty Cotes du Rhone red blend in a distinctive bottle for just $7 at Trader Joe's, the Caves du Fournalet Cotes du Rhone.
A red blend from the Rhone Valley of France. No info is given but it is likely primarily made from Grenache.
This wine is available exclusively at Trader Joe's for just $6.99. It is imported by Vinum International.
The 2019 Caves du Fournalet CdR red opens with pleasing blackberry and other berry aromas on the nose plus just a bit of spicy, herbal note.
Taking a sip of the medium bodied wine reveals a simple CdR but that's not a bad thing. Soft, smooth and easy to drink, a nice bit of spice develops on the mid-palate and leads into the dry, decent length and a bit grippy finish. For just $7 this is a worthy buy.
