Chateau Cambis Grenache/Syrah 2010
I reviewed this red Cotes du Rhone Villages in its previous incarnation under the "Vignerons de Caractere" heading. At that time it had, as the law then required of wines of that designation, an admixture of Mourvedre. I must say that I liked the older version better, the Mourvedre gave it a nice, soft character. This version is a little harsh, with overly pronounced tannins and a slight peppery element. It's not bad, but the other one was better. $9.99.
