Randall Grahm, Close But No Cigare, 2011, California
Price: $5 per bottle
Deep red wine with a nice bouquet. There is a plenty of fruit on the palette. Plum and cherry tone were noted, with a dry finish. The wine was smooth, with some tannins of the finish. We had this wine with spaghetti and red sauce. It was a good pairing, the red sauce enhanced the flavor of the wine.
Close But No Cigare is a blend of76% Mourvedre, 12% Syrah.and 12% Gernache. We purchase this as part of a special package from NakedWines.com. I recommend that you try this wine.
