Wine Find

2011 Morgan Cotes du Crows

December 10, 2013

From: Monterey, California

Price: $18

Serve with: Beef stew, standing rib

This polished blend of 60 percent syrah and 40 percent grenache delivers a dollop of true Rhone Valley style from a reliable California producer. It offers chunky blackberry fruit, with hints of blueberry and smoked meat. Behind its soft texture, it's very intense and penetrating, with lively acidity in the finish. It's quire ready now.
