CINSAUT Dry Creek Valley

CINSAUT Dry Creek Valley Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: DUCK, QUAIL, SQUAB, TURKEY. This is a fruity wine for birds. Good with French and Italian recipes and barbecue. Cherries, and strawberries jump out of the glass. A wonderful wine made from a rare grape. Rich, elegant flavors with lots of fruit. A little spice and earth add to the interest.

Varietal Definition
Semi-classic grape widely grown in southern France and also in the Lebanon. Used as component in some Cotes du Rhone red wine blends. Transplanted to South Africa, where it was erroneously thought to be a Rhone Hermitage grape, and now a widely grown varietal making a popular red wine in that country, it is also often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. It has also been used to create the hybrid grape species known as Pinotage.
