Rainy day Vacqueyras

Caves de Gigondas Vacqueyras Reserve de la Campriere

Another wine from one of my favorite regions, Southern Rhone.  It occurred to me the other day why I enjoy this region so much.  I think that there is a duality to the wines that encompass both new world ripeness with an old-world refined quality that makes wines from this region so remarkable.

In this glass, this is a beautiful garnet color.  The aromas are earthy, with cherry and spice.  Drinking this shows a lot of acidity and a nice long finish.

I love a rainy day every once in a while.  It somehow gives you the license to just hang around at home and do nothing and not feel guilty about it.  Apple season is just starting up so I”m making slow-cooked apple pork chops.  The combination of pork and apples cooking, the rain outside and this Vaqueyrays makes for a perfect evening.
