The Holy Grail


I’ve often suggested that France’s Rhone might be the Holy Grail of red wine. When you taste the wine below, you might agree.

I love the light Rhones for the refreshment, and the rich ones for the warm, nourishing feeling ““ but this guy has hit a wonderful middle ground. So appealing and so perfect with any situation. Let me take you through the show: an overture of playfulness, an opening act of spicy/sexy flavours, the middle show is expansive ““ lush, with a suggestion of richness, and the finale is sweet kisses. Need I say more! Get some. I’m taking it lightly chilled, and 24-7.
