The Oddbins Take

There is a community of Californian growers that go by the collective moniker the 'Rhone Rangers.' Depending on your outlook this will either strike you as awesome or provoke a tut and a muttered 'wine people!' Regardless of whether you approve of the name or not (we love it), the Rhone Rangers are becoming as much of an American institution as their namesake. In fact, the Rhone Rangers have the advantage of not having their franchise ruined by Disney and Jonny Depp with a dead crow on his head.


The group of growers hold very little interest in solving crimes in frontier towns and are much more focused on raising the prestige of Rhone varietals in California. Bottlings such as Tablas Creek Rouge from Paso Robles, have demonstrated Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre perform just as well in California as they do in Chateauneuf du Pape. Unrelenting aromas of wild strawberry, mint, fresh figs, and an undertone of chorizo-like meatiness are pervasive in this wine with a tight structure and an astonishingly long length. Better lasso a bottle of this before it gets away (that was poor, sorry Tonto.)
