93+ Jeb Dunnuck (2/15/2018) "Coming from 100-year-old Grenache vines (there's 10% each of Syrah and Mourvedre in the blend) mostly in the northern part of the Southern Rhone, the 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Arcane le Soleil saw 15 months in one-third each of new barrels, concrete tanks, and stainless-steel tanks. This inky colored beauty offers a terrific perfume of blueberries, scorched earth, graphite, and crushed violets. Deep, full-bodied, incredibly pure, and elegant, with silky tannin, it's a sensational Cotes du Rhône that's better than most Chateauneuf du Pape in the vintage. It will be better in another year or two and keep for 8-10 years."
93 James Suckling (7/26/2019) "This is a very composed and concentrated style with intense, fresh red-berry and cherry aromas, delivered in a concentrated, fresh and energetic style. Impressive wine. Drink or hold."
94 Wine Advocate (10/31/2017) "The 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Arcane XIX Le Soleil is youthfully dark in color and fruit-forward, but it also shows softening, silky tannins. It's full bodied but not overblown, with a sensationally seductive mouthfeel. Black cherries define the fruit, joined by hints of dark chocolate and enough garrigue to give it a seriously savory character despite the fruit. This is an old-vine blend of 80% Grenache with 10% each Syrah and Mourvedre, aged 15 months in one-third new oak, the rest in concrete or foudre. Maybe the best Cote du Rhone Villages I've ever tasted, it looks to have the stuffing to go another 10 years. Drink Date: 2017 - 2027."

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue.

If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
