Wine Review: This old world wine really surprised me and was worthy of a placement on the Practical Party Case List. It probably does hurt to find out that the parent winery is Lafite Rothchild. On the nose, this wine has an earthy old world bouquet. This wine is ideal for fans of good Cote du Rhones. On the palate, this wine is nicely balanced and smooth. I would match this wine with a nice big bacon & mushroom burger from your favorite bistro. The finish is extended and dry. Fans of this style should buy it in bulk. Enjoy – Ken
