A limited-production Rhone Valley variety (thought to be introduced to the Rhone from Spain) with flavors of kirsh, jammy strawberries and hints of spice. Lighter in body, this wine will pair perfectly with comfort foods such as beef or lamb stew, French onion soup, goat cheese and brie.
I tasted this today and I am not normally a red wine person. This is my second favorite after Gammy Rouge. It is hearty, but light. It is like a Pino Noir without the deep flavors. I was very impressed and brought home several bottles.
