Paul Jaboulet Aîné, 'Paralléle 45' Côtes du Rhône Rouge 2019 (Magnum )
Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre grapes, which are hand-harvested and carefully selected.
It has a deep ruby color and an aroma of red berries, plums, and spices, with a hint of black pepper. On the palate, it has a medium-bodied texture with flavours of dark fruit, including black cherries and blackberries, along with notes of spices and a hint of vanilla. The tannins are firm but well integrated, giving the wine a smooth and velvety texture. The finish is long and flavourful, with a touch of spice and a hint of mineral.
A versatile wine that pairs well with a variety of dishes, such as roasted meats, stews, and grilled vegetables.
Best served slightly chilled and can be enjoyed now or aged for several years to further develop its complex flavours.
