Roeno Marzemino La Rua and Lacoste Borie Pauillac

Roeno Marzemino La Rua
Roeno
Marzemino La Rua 2013

This lovely red comes from North East Italy in the Vallagarina IGT located in the famous Trentino-Alto Adige region. This area is known for producing Pinot Grigio but they make excellent lighter styles of reds. Marzemino is a late ripening, dark skinned grape variety that is rarely bottled on its own and usually used as a blending partner. Roeno’s 100 percent Marzemino is fermented and aged in stainless steel vats. This wine opens with bouquet of violets and spice that evolves to classic notes of sour cherry with hints of herbs like Thyme and Rosemary. Pair this medium bodied elegant red with roasted lamb with rosemary, garlic and lemon. Or have it with sweet dark Chocolate truffles this Valentines Day!

Lacoste Borie

Pauillac 2004

Eric Boissenot calls the 2004 vintage “a very classic year” and the Lacoste Borie 2004 encompasses that character. Second label of the famed label Grand Puy Lacoste, this blend is composed of 70% Cabernet and 26% Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc. Average age of the vines is 40 years old harvested from 55 hectares of vines that surround the estate. The Lacoste-Borie 2004 with over a decade in bottle displays mature notes of earth, spice and a hint of savory fruit. Absolutely delicious at this stage as the tannins have fully integrated and the wine is in perfect balance. Enjoy with a quality steak or by itself, this wine needs no distraction.
