*Abbaye de Saint Hilaire Domeni 2008
Grown in a vineyard in the Vars in Provence, once belonging to a romanesque monastery, this red, a blend of Shiraz, Granache and Cabernet Sauvignon, is the middle grade of three. It's a a nicely balanced mix of dark berry and chocolate, with a slight tinge of licorice at the finish. On line only, a good buy at $7.99.
