Cellier Du Delta Cotes du Rhone 2014

The third wine from Lidl that I tried was this Cotes du Rhone.  Long time readers of this blog know I like Cotes du Rhone wines from southern France and that I judge these wines against the Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages which is usually available every fall for $6.99.

The Cellier Du Delta Cotes du Rhone is a typical Cotes du Rhone.  There is no useful information on the bottle except the alcohol content of 13% and the vintage is 2014.  As with every other Cotes du Rhone red wine, we can assume the wine contains Grenache and Syrah.

The wine has flavors of cherry, black cherry and blackberries.  The flavor is not as bright and crisp as the Kirkland, but overall it is an enjoyable wine to pair with informal entrees.  This wine sells at Lidl for $5.99.
