'09 Rasteau, Cotes du Rhone

unWine'd with a pour...

<$30, This wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah & 10% Mourvedre (aka GSM). It's from the Rhone Valley, Southeastern France, East of Bordeaux. This region is primarily Grenache and blended with other varietals. This wine has earthiness and dark fruit on the nose with some spiciness, from the Syrah, on the mid-palate as well as a nice lingering finish.

This wine pairs with everything from Caprese Salad to Beef Stew. Or, just shared amongst friends. Cheers...
