Thoughts on Rhône Blends from Luminaria’s Wine Expert

Composed of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, a red Rhône blend comes to mind when bridging the seasons. Contemplating cool evenings or perhaps a weekend grill night, this red’s velvety chocolate notes embrace the chilly air and earthy aromas on the palette.

Towards the south of The Rhône Valley, the steep slopes yield to an expansive basin in which is blistering during the summer. Here an authentic sea of everyday red is produced. With fall looming on the pink horizon, as we slowly surrender the brightness of days filled with fruit, cheese, and rosé, we welcome the bounty of squashes, pear, and pumpkins, and hearty wines to accompany the inevitable transition.

Rhone Blends are a wonderful combination of rustic and ripe. Next time you’re enjoying Luminaria’s Pork Tacos ask for a glass of Côtes du Rhône by Kermit Lynch.
