Another outstanding value as well as an outstanding wine, is the 2010 Red, which is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan and Cinsault. A melange of red and blue fruits, along with loamy soil notes, tobacco leaf and Provencal herbs all jump from the glass of this front end-loaded, perfumed wine. It is medium to full-bodied and exhibits plenty of deep, dark fruit and a good, spicy finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. 

Wine Review
Description:

Costières de Nîmes is the most southerly appellation of the Rhone, and it speaks in a different voice from the others, both richer and crisper. Although clearly a Rhone wine, I find in good Costières de Nîmes what I also like in Burgundy and Bordeaux, a frank, freshness and fruity snap that even some of the more elite Rhone appellations, for all their ripeness, often have trouble expressing.  Domaine de la Petite Cassagne, from the portfolio of Washington’s own Robert “Bobby” Kacher, has made a delectable 2010, even better than the popular 2009. With its robust, mouth filling, fresh fruit, this wine is tailor made for the late summer and Labor Day barbecue grill.
