    "Always one of the best price point bets in the region. Savory aromas of pomegranate, boysenberry, tar, charred meat and dried thyme lead into a palate layered in purple flowers, marjoram..." ~ Wine Enthusiast

    This Morgan Cotes du Crow's is one of our go-to Pinots when we don't want to think hard about a delicious red that goes with everything from roast chicken to a hearty bolognaise,  or a grilled ribeye and some creamy smashed potatoes. The bonus and other big draw here: that price! This falls into our BBC category winelovers - Buy By the Case.

    Wine Enthusiast: Designated Editors' Choice. "This blend of 52% Syrah, 44% Grenache and 4% Tempranillo is always one of the best price point bets in the region. Savory aromas of pomegranate, boysenberry, tar, charred meat and dried thyme lead into a palate layered in purple flowers, marjoram and dark-berry fruit. " Oct 2018

    James Suckling: "Lots of peppers and spices with dark berries, chocolate and hints of meat. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. A fun blend of syrah, grenache, and tempranillo. Drink now. Screw cap." May 2018

    Winery:  "This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Rasberry jam, cedar, and fig paste aromas jump out of the glass. The wine is medi- um-bodied with soft tannins, offering a mouthful of brambleberry and black cherry. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.

    Cotes du Crow’s is our unique blend of the two noble, predominant red varietals of France’s southern Rhone Valley: Grenache and Syrah. This year we again decid- ed to use a small amount of Tempranillo - its spice and earth tones are a beautiful complement to Grenache and Syrah. Sourced primarily from the Arroyo Seco and San Lucas appellations of Monterey County. Warmer daytime temperatures are mitigated by ocean breezes and cool nights - fostering acidity and balance."
