Kermit Lynch-France-Cotes Du Rhone-Cypress Cuvee-2006-$11.70-As I have said in prior reviews, I really enjoy this region on France..and that is saying allot since I am not a huge fan of French wines.  Good fruit, smooth, spice, just an enjoyable drinking wine with or without food.       NR      CR-4       Good with chicken, meats, pasta.

Chateau Beauchene-Cotes Du Rhone-Grande Reserve-Grenache-Syrah-Rhone-France-2005-$13.99-Nose of dark, spicy fruit.  Ruby red color.   A mix of earth, spice, and dark cherries.  Wines from Cotes Du Rhone are a good value, hard to find in French wine.           RP-84       CR-4       Good with chicken, pasta, ribs.
