Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2016 Terre D’Argile Red Blend Tasting and Review


This week I open, taste and review a Domaine De La Janasse Cotes Du Rhone Villages 2016 Terre D’Argile Red Blend from France. I purchased it for $19.99 from Winestore in Blakeney.

During the show I toast all my friends who had birthdays during the week, as well as my wife’s birthday in the coming week. I also tell you why I think red light cameras installed at intersections are dangerous.
