Robert Skalli ’06 Languedoc Reserve

The French are known for their love, and its easy to see how that passion parlays into their grapes. This ’06 Languedoc Reserve from Robert Skalli and Southern France is rich with flavor, potent aromas and elegant tannins. It harmoniously blends Syrah, Grenache and Carignan grapes taken from across three of the Skalli vineyards in the Languedoc region. Skalli prides his wines on their ripened fruit properties, and you’ll be sure to taste that with this wine alongside its scents of violet and cayenne pepper.

Pairing? Its delicious, yet adoringly spicy - a perfect combination of herbal and floral which will leave you envisioning all the foods you could partner with it. I'd try this Smoked Salmon Filet to balance out the entire experience. Yummers!
