2009 Chateau Saint Baulery Saint-Chinian 

Languedoc, France

A Rhone-style red, this bottling was produced with fruit from vines at least 30 years old planted in the Saint Chinian commune in southern France's Languedoc region. Robust and full-bodied, the wine is a blend of 40 percent Carignan and 30 percent each Syrah and Grenache. In the glass, it offers aromas of cassis and black cherry with herbal and pepper notes followed by black currants, plum, dried berries and firm tannins on the palate. Decant an hour before serving. Drink it with tapenade, muffulettas, roast duck, wild game, rare beef, veal dishes and aged cheeses. Buy it at: Swirl Wines, Stein's Market & Deli. Drink it at: Swirl Wines. — BRENDA MAITLAND
