A Wine to Drink Right Now!


The return of summer weather has increased my need for budget friendly wines that may be drunk both outside and inside.  The 2012 Domaine Font de Michelle, Notre Passion, Cotes du Rhone Villages offers exactly that.  The flavors are somewhat tart, which is appropriate for some warm weather, but it will also develop over the fall and winter months.  In short, there is a lot going on for such an affordable price!  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2012 Domaine Font de Michelle, Notre Passion, Cotes du Rhone – $13
Imported DS Trading Company.  This wine is a blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah.  Alcohol 14%.  There was a subtle nose of red and black cherries.  In the mouth were closely played flavors of ripe, red cherry fruit that turned blacker towards the middle.  At the finish, slightly tart red fruit was revealed with a young structure.  This tasty wine has some density, supporting acidity, and attractive ruggedness.  **(*) Now-2017.
