This Morgan Cotes du Crow’s is one of our go-to reds when we don’t want to think hard about a delicious red that goes with everything from roast chicken to a hearty bolognaise, or a grilled ribeye and some creamy smashed potatoes. The bonus and other big draw here: that price! This falls into our BBC category winelovers – Buy By the Case. Wine Enthusiast: Designated Editors’ Choice. “This blend of 66% Grenache, 31% Syrah and 3% Tempranillo is slightly effervescent in the glass at this young age, delivering aromas of red currant, hibiscus and crushed gravel. Cranberry and cherry meet with stony acidity on the zesty and fresh palate.” Jul 2020 Winery: “This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Rasberry jam, cedar, and fig paste aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medi- um-bodied with soft tannins, offering a mouthful of brambleberry and black cherry. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill. Cotes du Crow’s is our unique blend of the two noble, predominant red varietals of France’s southern Rhone Valley: Grenache and Syrah. This year we again decid- ed to use a small amount of Tempranillo – its spice and earth tones are a beautiful complement to Grenache and Syrah. Sourced primarily from the Arroyo Seco and San Lucas appellations of Monterey County. Warmer daytime temperatures are mitigated by ocean breezes and cool nights – fostering acidity and balance.” Bottle750ml, screw capVarietal56% Grenache, 37% Syrah and 7% TempranilloAlcohol14.2%Total Acidity6.3g/LpH3.50Aging10 months in 100% French oak, 15% newRegionMonterey, Central Coast, California
