January 2011
Issue 6 - January 14

Please join us for our first French wine dinner of 2011. We will be sampling Rh�ne Valley wines that are always consistently good and delicious.

In fact, this year one in particular received special accolades from Rober Parker:
"The 2007 C�tes du Rh�ne has finally been released, and Guigalhas made his finest C�tes du Rh�ne to date, all from purchased juice. He and his son told me they go through thousands of samples in order to come up with this cuvee, which is based on 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, and 10% Mourvedre, all aged in tank. A deep ruby/purple wine with lots of cassis, kirsch, pepper,
and even an intriguing floral note, the wine is medium to fullbodied, silky smooth, and a truly delicious, hedonistic and intellectually satisfying wine that is a remarkable bargain. It should drink well for 2-4 years, as these wines can actually last...the best he
has ever made." ~ RP, Wine Advocate # 191, October 2010.

How can you go wrong with a review of the wines like that? The menu looks delicious and it will be a delightful and informative evening with Stephanie Ferrier.

We hope to see you then!
