Ah, the famous Rhône blend, that unique combination of grapes that creates deliciously spicy red wines from France's world-renowned Rhône region. It's there that Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache reign supreme. And it just so happens that the 2011 Neptune's Trident Central Coast Red is a blend of 50 percent Syrah, 40 percent Mourvèdre and 10 percent Grenache, a distinctively American take on what you'd find in the Rhône. No fancy French-wine prices here, though. This powerhouse red will keep your taste buds and your wallet happy.
Intoxicating aromas of jammy red fruit and baked blackberry pie explode from the glass. On the palate, those same unctuous notes coat the mouth, along with flavors of black cherry, fleshy plum and a hint of sweet tobacco. The tannins are round and plush, while the acidity gives the wine structure. With each sip, look forward to discovering a new mouthwatering experience. The rich berry flavors and sweet tannins make this wine an ideal pairing for anything from backyard barbecue fare to savory braised short ribs. The wine's also approachable, so it's a perfect party pour.
