Perrin & Fils Côtes du Rhône Reserve 2007

Member Review by barri0s1872:

overly oaked. medium bodied, large fruit (apples, pears, etc on the nose) the mouthfeel in the end leaves you feeling too much alcohol but it's not cloying.

6-20-09: This wine really shines if you open it about 6 hrs. before you drink it. Trader Joe’s has it for $6.99 on the West Coast so it maybe even cheaper on the East Coast. It’s a great bargain at $6.99 and if you can get it for less it’s an out and out steal.

Non-descript red fruits with a touch of oak. Very smooth after some aeration. Good everyday drinking wine.

Good. Light body, fairly well balanced, slightly tannic, fruitty, somewhat sweet with a bad after taste.

light, fruity. my hubby described it as a "classic french wine." can't beat the price.

Good wine for the price. Not much of a nose and not a lot happening on the pallet, but what would you expect for an under $10 wine? Hints of sour cherry on the nose and pallet. Decanted for 2 hours. Came to life with cheese, crackers and pesto. Definitely a more enjoyable wine with food (especially pesto!).

External Review

Bursting with cherry and strawberry aromas this Rhône red packs a peppery punch. Subtly integrated fruit embraces an underlying earthiness that rounds out the finish beautifully.

External Review

The 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Perrin Reserve may be the finest wine yet made under this moniker. This sells for a whopping $12 a bottle. A blend of essentially equal parts Syrah and Grenache it offers a deep ruby/purple hue along with sweet blackberry black currant char licorice and smoky herb notes. Drink this dense Provencal-styled seductive lush 2007 over the next 3–4 years.

External Review

A round easy style with a dusting of grilled herb over the open-knit red and black cherry fruit. There’s a stony hint on the finish which fills out nicely in the glass. Grenache Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now.
