Rhone by Roger Sabon - Côte du Rhone 2011 4.5/5

I have to say... This is yet another special occasion wine.  Our table enjoyed it at a lovely Kelowna restaurant. 

 It was recommended by the chef and while we enjoy BC wines, we were eating... French. 

Heres the down low: 

black cherry and raspberry with the pepper down the road or rather, the tip of the tongue.

 

The lovely & sweet words are overused, but oh so accurate. The light black pepper and raspberry is the group concensus. Delightful. 

 

The other table drinking the same wine (mostly because I poured and they had fancy shirts) thought it was extremely well balanced.  

Lighter than the Shiraz they were drinking and the comments were... House wine. Delicious, get nothing done, house wine.
