TASTING NOTE: The assemblage in the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Gadagne is 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvèdre. Aged in tank, this full-bodied beauty starts with hints of struck match and asphalt, then eases into vibrant black cherries and orange zest. It's a touch warm but creamy on the mid-palate, then velvety on the long, lively finish. Drink date: 2018-2022. Score - 89-91 (Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com, Nov. 30, 2018) Price $ 17.95
