92 Points from Jeb Dunnuck

The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Cuvée Romaine is another custom cuvée from Importer Eric Solomon that’s all from declassified Vacqueyras vines. A blend of 50% Grenache, 45% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault, it reveals a deep ruby/plum color as well as a great nose of black raspberries, black cherries, olive tapenade, ground pepper, and earth. It's a fleshy, full-bodied, beautifully pure, rounded effort that's again a smoking value.

 

Winemaker Notes

The Cuvée Romaine is a blend made from the more precocious tanks at Domaine la Garrigue. As such, it is in fact a declassified Vacqueyras not needing additional time in concrete. Therefore it can be viewed as a really easy-going “Vacqueyras” or an amazingly complex and serious Côtes-du-Rhône.
