2016 Foncalieu Le Versant Rosé, Languedoc, France

A seamless Cabernet from beginning to end. Gentle, dark berry fruit opens up to supple texture and long finish. A well-crafted, balanced, full-bodied Napa Valley Cabernet. Try with slow roasted brisket.

Featured Wines

2016 Domaine Saladin ‘Per El’ Blanc, Cotes du Rhone
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
Bright and minerally on the nose, displaying intense Meyer lemon, pear and honeysuckle scents and flavors and a hint of quinine. Silky, focused and dry, showing a deft combination of depth and vivacity and a hint of fennel on the back half. Closes stony and long, displaying repeating florality and a lingering suggestion of candied lemon.

2014 Chateau Valcombe ‘Les Haut des Valcombe’ Rouge, Ventoux
Regularly $14.99, Tasting Price $12.74
A classic combo of Grenache and Syrah, the 2014 is even more elegant and lifted than previous vintages while still retaining the ripeness of fruit and secondary flavors and aromas that make this juice so distinctive. Great for herb roasted chicken.

2015 Domaine La Bouissiere, Vacqueyras
Regularly $29.99, Tasting Price $25.49
Complex, deeply scented bouquet evokes candied black and blue fruits, Indian spices and floral oils, with a mineral element adding lift and focus. Densely packed boysenberry and mulberry flavors stretch out and gain vivacity with air, picking up a subtle hint of smokiness. This is a fantastic wine for grilled meat, try a sirloin roast.

2015 Domaine des Hauts Chassis, Crozes-Hermitage
Regularly $29.99, Tasting Price $25.49
Ripe, dark berry and cherry pit scents, along with suggestions of olive and cracked pepper. Juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors open up slowly on the back half, picking up hints of smokiness and licorice. Northern Rhone Syrah is perfect for roasted leg of lamb.
