Cotes du Crow’s is our unique blend of the two noble, predominant red varietals of France’s southern Rhone Valley: Grenache and Syrah. This year we decided again to include a small amount of Tempranillo - its spice and earth tones are a beautiful complement to Grenache and Syrah.

The wine was fermented in open top tanks and received manual punch-downs. This enabled good extraction and structure development with pleasant tannins. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels (7% new), giving subtle spice and vanilla characters without overpowering the elegant fruit profile. This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Raspberry, boysenberry jam, and anise aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-full bodied with soft tannins, offering a mouthful of black plum and raspberry hard candy. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.

92 Points - Editors' Choice
"This blend of 66% Grenache, 31% Syrah and 3% Tempranillo is slightly effervescent in the glass at this young age, delivering aromas of red currant, hibiscus and crushed gravel. Cranberry and cherry meet with stony acidity on the zesty and fresh palate." - Matt Ketmann, July 2020




91 Points
"Medium garnet color; smooth, lush and juicy with bright blackberry and rich fruit; lively, clean and tangy, stylish and long." - Anthony Dias Blue, March 2020

 



90 Points
"Dark, shimmering red. Spice-accented aromas of raspberry, cherry, licorice and succulent flowers display good clarity and a touch of smokiness. Plush red fruit and floral pastille flavors reveal a peppery flourish and no rough edges. Rich yet energetic in style, finishing with repeating spiciness, velvety tannins and strong, floral-driven persistence." - Josh Raynolds, October 2020
