Crowd pleaser French Red.
One of our goals here at The Wine Country is to make sure the wines we offer taste like their birthplace, especially those from the old world wine regions. That said, when I can find a super juicy, fruit forward, slightly beefy little value red to offer as a "crossover" wine to coax new world wine buyers over to the French department, well I go for it. This Grenache heavy red from the Southern Rhone delivers both comfortable up front fruit and classic French texture, albeit a bit more thick waisted than some of the other Cotes du Rhone I stock. A big blast of berries, coco and a touch of coffee with a mouth filling texture and a good grippy finish. Easy to love and makes me crave meat right off the grill.
