2015 Sablet Rouge "Tenebi" (Counoise) (Piaugier, Domaine de)
Domaine de Piaugier, Sablet Rouge "Tenebi", Southern Rhone, France 2015100% Counoise BOYSENBERRY & CHOCOLATE-COVERED CHERRY, WHITE PEPPER & GARRIGUES Counoise may not be a household name, but if you’re an avid enjoyer of Chateauneuf, you just may have tasted it…ever so slightly. It’s one of the Southern Rhone’s lesser-known varieties, and occasionally contributes its purpley fruit and spice (often reminiscent of Grenache) to the coveted blends from north of Avignon. Richly ripe and mediterranean, this unique yet recognizably Rhone-ish offering has an additionally foresty, berryish quality which bolsters its gently rustic though elegant flair. Serving Suggestion: Crispy, hickory-smoked bacon w/ polenta, sautéed collards, onions, & red bell peppers. Red lentil curry w/ cumin, black pepper, & garlic.
