"Ripe cherries and mulberries emerge from the nose of the value-priced 2016 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche Rouge. A superb buy, it over-delivers at its modest price point, offering baskets of berry fruit alongside more savory notes of meat, coffee beans and black olive. Drink it over the next few years."

"Plush, plummy red-cherry and berry flavors mingle into smokier tones of anise and earth in this full-bodied red. It's approachably ripe yet crisply balanced, with a finish marked by firm, velvet-edged tannins"

"Fresh and forward, with a blast of dark cherry and plum skin flavors laced with violet and lavender notes. Lightly dusty tannins carry the finish. Drink now through 2019. 30,000 cases made, 27,000 cases imported."
