Sainsbury's House Côtes Du Rhône

Here's another wine from Sainsbury's house range. I actually bought the boxed version of this to make mulled wine with for our Hallowe'en party, with an intent to evaluate it on its merits as a table wine. Again, this seems to be a non-vintage wine.

Well, it tastes like a Côtes Du Rhône at least, with typical spiciness and Ribena-ish flavours. It has some earthiness but is still light, not too bad really. If you're partial to this region this might be a winner.
