This Grenache and Carignan red blend from the small region of Fitou in the southeast of France is a terrific introduction to wines of the Mediterranean coast. In the 2011 (rated 91 points by Wine Enthusiast), ripe red jammy fruits exude from the glass and carry through the palate of this lush, full-bodied wine. Silky tannins create a long enjoyable finish.
While the kids may be heading back to school, summer’s not over yet! Make the most of the cooler evening weather and plan an outdoor get-together with good friends and our latest wines of the month. With fresh and spicy flavors, a 91-point wine and a California State Fair winner, there’s something for everyone.
