$90.95 Château de Beaucastel 2005 One of the region’s best wines. This massively concentrated, intense wine has notes of game, black cherries, dried herbs, cedar, garrigue, violets, earth and smoke. The Mourvedre grape leads in this blend. Full-bodied with a terrific warm finish. Decants for 2 hours. Moderate tannins in the finish. Food matches: creamed onions, prime rib, lamb shanks, cheddar cheese, dark chocolate.
Blackberry Sangria - 1.5 liters of sweet red wine. (I use Barefoot brand - it's the best flavor for this recipe) 14 oz. of DeKuyper Blackberry Brandy 14 oz. of cranberry juice (not concentrate or cocktail - straight juice) 6 oz. of Tuaca Make about one week to five days prior to serving. Keep refrigerated. Put out about 45 minutes prior to serving, diluting in ice. Garnish with your favorite fruits (blackberries, oranges, black cherries, etc....)
