2009 Andezon Côtes du Rhône (Previously $11)
91 points Robert Parker: "The 2009 Domaine d’Andezon (90% Syrah and 10% Grenache) is a tank-fermented and aged, unfined/unfiltered cuvee made only for the American market from 50-year-old vines. It offers explosive notes of smoky bacon fat, cassis, and blackberries, a deep, rich, chewy style, and an exuberant, flashy personality. With unbelievable flavor intensity and personality for its price, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next several years.This large cooperative south of Chateauneuf du Pape has been the source of some dazzling values over recent years."
