90 points "One of the best buys of this portfolio is the Cotes du Rhone Les Violettes, a blend of 80% Syrah and 20% white grapes. The 2004 Cotes du Rhone Les Violettes could be called the Southern Rhone’s La Mouline of Rasteau. A sexy perfume of acacia flowers, sweet creme de cassis, and blackberries soars from the glass of this round, medium to full-bodied, opulent, extroverted, explosively fruity, rich effort. This wine should be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years." Best 2006-2009
