Plume Bleue Vin de Pays d’Oc is a 50/50 Grenache Syrah blend made by a very good winemaker. This big fruity wine has lots of plum, cherry and dark berry flavors with just enough chewy tannins to balance it out. It has a mildly smoky flavor.
This stuff just begs for some grilled lamb or pork. Chilled, it could be served with a nice summer salad. Best of all? You should be able to find it for under $10. Look for the 2005 if you can find it.
