This Sunday we are off to France for a round of reds (which sounds more fun to me than a round of golf in this weather). Both of these will be perfect for the holiday table, should they last that long. Come and check them out.
2017 Bila-Haut Côtes de Rousillion Villages $15
Syrah, Grenache, Carignan
Deep garnet red. Aromas of black cherry. Hand harvested, this wine is fleshy, well-structured with the warm and savage of soils of the Roussillon area. Serve with a nice piece of beef, Mediterranean food.
2016 Jean-Luc Colombo Les Collenes de Laure $20
Ruby, light in color. Expressive nose of red fruits and spices. Fresh, round, tannins, good balance. Manual harvest. Perfect as an aperitif, accompaniment of tapas and sliced meats, or on a meal off the grill. Sustainable
