E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône 2003

What a find!

This elegant wine has a deep, dark red colour with a spicy aroma, well-balanced tannins and fruit, and a smooth texture.

The palate is wonderfully complex: it is initially fresh and fruity followed by an unexpected, slight acidity and a long and pleasant finish.

I think this would compliment most foods very well, as it not overwhelming. It went very well with my pasta, and I would pair it with meat, fish, or cheese too.

Definitely give this one a try!

$12.99 at Beacon Wine & Spirits (2120 Broadway at 74th Street, 212-877-0028)
