The 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Terre d'Argile is an equal-parts blend of Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. It's a full-bodied, silky-textured wine with bright acids that can rival many Châteauneuf-du-Papes. Dusty, earthy notes and dried spices accent cherry-berry fruit and then pick up classy hints of licorice on the lingering finish. —by Joe Czerwinski

Ripe and fresh, with a racy feel to the raspberry and cassis fruit that forms the core, laced liberally with anise and violet notes. A light graphite edge gives the finish good contrast. Drink now through 2022.

"The same blend and elevage as the 2015, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Terre d'Argile is smoking good. Black currants, black raspberries, garrigue and ample minerality all give way to a full-bodied, ripe, sexy wine that's going to drink nicely right out of the gate."
