What others think of this wine...

Jeb Dunnuck - Wine Advocate 209, October 2013. says:

A super value, the 2011 Cotes du Rhone is a rich, textured effort that possesses a deep, earthy slant to its fruit, with more licorice, pepper, charcoal and spice emerging with time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, nicely fruited and well-textured, it’s a rock-solid effort that will drink nicely for 3-5 years. Drink now-2018.
