Last weekend, I was reading through some of my favorite recipe books and decided to break into a new wine: Château Bolchet Costières-de-Nîmes. It is a red wine that is a combination of half Syrah and half Grenache. I have recently become a fan of Grenache, but have always been so-so about Syrah. This combination brings together both of what I like about these two wines. A spicy taste hits you when you first sip this wine and then mellows out into a berry tasting and mild finish. For the price, you can’t go wrong with this one.
