Baby Cote Rotie
Earlier in the week I offered two Rhone Wines at a silly price and sold out in less than 2 hours….leaving some of you out in the cold. So in trying to make up for that, I am offering Ogier’s La Rosine BELOW COST! At $20 per bottle when purchased by the case Htis is an obscene bargain. ONLY 7 CASES AVAILABLE. NO PHONE CALLS YOU MUST REPLY TO THIS EMAIL.

While Ogier makes top notch and expensive Cote Rotie, he also makes a 100% Syrah based wine called La Rosine. The La Rosine displays classic Côte Rôtie aromas and flavors such as smoked meats, ripe plums, black tea, and spice. Silky mouthfeel. This is an awesome entry-level wine from the northern Rhône, and is less than half the price of good Côte Rôtie.
West Palm Wines is happy to offer this incredible wine, which is already a bargain, at the lowest price on the net.
Quantities are small so reserve yours now.

Coming from a steep granite hillside near the village of Tupin-et-Semons, just on the outskirts of Côte Rôtie, the 2012 La Rosine Syrah VDP is 100% Syrah that was brought up in mostly older barrels. It’s a beautiful wine that, unsurprisingly, bares more than a passing resemblance to a high-quality Côte Rôtie from the southern part of the appellation. Sweet raspberry, licorice, spice and crushed rock-like qualities flow nicely to a medium-bodied, sexy, supple 2012 that has outstanding purity of fruit and a terrific finish. It’s hard to resist now, but I’ve no doubt it will evolve gracefully for upward of a decade.

Brilliant ruby. Exotic, high-toned aromas of blackberry liqueur, apricot, pungent flowers and white pepper. Silky and seamless in texture, offering gently sweet, smoke-tinged red and dark berry flavors and a strong suggestion of spicecake. Shows no obvious tannins on the impressively persistent finish, which repeats the blackberry and spice notes. Stephane Ogier says that while he suspects that this wine will age positively for five to eight years, “it’s to drink, really, while you wait for the Cote-Rotie to mature.”
