Alain Jaume & Fils Grand Veneur Reserve

This red Cotes du Rhone (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault) has a nice blend of raspberry, blackberry and sof tannins. A pleasant wine but, at $12.95, much overpriced, available for two or three dollars less elsewhere. Are you tuned in, GovernorCorbett?

Good for you for exposing the PA liquor board. Wholesalers are trying to get the U.S. Congress to pass a law that will keep us all from buying our wine direct -- where we are able to consistently get wines at $1-$5 less in the sub-$15 category.
Keep up the good work.
