Paul Jaboulet Aine Parallele 45

Alright, so the 45th parallel N. is, generally, a good place to grow wine. This Cotes du Rhone red certainly doesn't belie that axiom. A mix of grenache and syrah, it has a nice plum flavor attenuated by a pleasant spiciness, but with no trace of the licorice that is characteristic of the region. Nicely priced at $8.99.

Arnulf, I just recently discovered your blog. Very great stuff here.

I am a fellow Pennsylvanian and founder/developer of WineLog.net. If you are interested, I'd like if you could contact me about blogging on our platform there. I'd love a good PA blogger on the team, and we can give you some good exposure.

Shoot me an email at jason@winelog.net. Thanks.
