If you’re like us, then Thanksgiving put a pretty good dent in your Everyday Red stock. People are in town visiting. There are impromptu parties where a hostess gift would be appreciated. And there are always those times when you just want a delicious glass Red after a long day at work. So, this week we have a perfect French table wine that you can use whenever something delicious and hearty is required but you don’t want to open anything super fancy. A classic Cotes du Rhone cepage led by Grenache and flanked by Syrah and Mourvedre delivers a richly textured palate with a kiss of firm tannin supporting the fruit. And what nice fruit it has! Buxom notes of blueberry jam and cassis liqueur kick things off while glorious layers of tar, olive tapenade, crushed pepper, and sun baked earth wrap up neatly on the long, mineral laden finish. This is a serious wine. It is a hearty, full bodied wine. And it’s not even a bit sweet, standing in stark contrast to many of its American Red blend cousins. If you love Old World Reds then the 2014 Le Clos de Paulilles is a perfect wine to grab now so that you’ll have it at the ready when the need arises this Holiday Season.
Food Pairing:A great Rhone blend like this week’s special, the 2014 Le Clos de Paulilles, is perfectly suited to being your new House Red. It’s richly textured palate, plump dark fruit profile, and dry, structured finish makes it an ideal choice for everything from cured meats and cheeses all the way up through a hearty bowl of beef and barley stew. Please swing by the tasting bar to try this delicious Red tonight for free. We think you’ll quickly agree that it is just the kind of thing you want to fill those empty spots in your wine rack with.
