Les Aphillanthes, Cotes-du-Rhone, 2005 was a nice fresh start to our red flight at the Google goes Green party. I asked our Google friend Rick what he thought about this wine and he said, "I like the lightness of it, but it still has a nice spicy quality... perfect for a summer evening." Drinking this wine is sort of like going camping, rustic and natural. Like the Ehlers it's also biodynamically farmed.

Aphillanthes also makes a higher end cuvee called Cuvée des Galets. I'd say check that one out too. It's a little less rustic.

You can get this wine at Lucques for around $30. It's available at Woodland Hills Wine Co. for $12.99. You can get the higher end wines for $18.99 at the Wine House
