Clos du Mont-Olivet 2007 Cotes du Rhone Varene

Near-opaque purple color, red highlights.

Earthy stone-fruit smell, hint of uncooked Canadian bacon.

Purple plum flavor, tart black cherry, peach at the finish.

Good bottle for $26.99, 2007 is often said to be an overwhelming year for Southern Rhones, this is a full-bodied wine with plenty of promise.
