DESCRIPTION

The Cuvée du Sommelier is a 100 percent Grenache from the Southern Rhone that pours light garnet. The fruit is delicate and tart, with a hint of cranberry and Bing cherry. This table wine has no affectation—it’s an everyday drinking wine, perfect to serve lightly chilled with salami or cheese, or for dinner with lamb chops. It’s beautifully balanced, with dry tannins and fresh acidity, a hint of limestone, mint, thyme, and lavender.

A perfect spring picnic wine, and a great value.
