K&L Notes

An award winner at many French wine competitions, the Dame Victoria is an impressive Rhône red raised not far from the fabled vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Warmly fruited and full of robust, rustic character, the nose offers minerality and blue fruit notes, which are echoed on the palate and joined with berries, berries and more berries. Elegant on the supple finish, this is just the red to pair with chicken, burgers, roasts and cheesy vegetarian dishes.

    We have been importing the productions from this growers’ co-operative from the village area of Rasteau in the Southern Rhone Valley for nearly twenty years, now, and the quality consistency has just been outstanding year after year. And when take into account a great vintage in that area as the 2015 is, the quality of wine suddenly becomes stunning even when you consider the price point. Traditionally produced from Grenache {70%}, Syrah {20%}, and Mourvedre {10%}, this medium-deep ruby in color wine offers lush, distinctive aromas of white pepper, anise, blueberry fruit with creamy to truffle-like background notes in the nose that carries into a rich, round, nicely balanced palate impression. Good fullness and weight in the midrange, with excellent structure and silkiness that leads into its long, warm finish, this Gem is one to consume in the near-term which Rusty and I plan to do for the next three to six years – maybe longer. I have been ordered to bring home cases of this Gem and he thinks that you should think in the same terms. A DELICIOUS VALUE! …..A K&L WINE MERCHANTS’ DIRECT IMPORT….. ***** 14.5% ABV *****

    The “Dame” comes from the local co-op in the village of Rasteau. We have been working with this winery for years and it never disappoints, while offering great cost-to-quality value. The wine is loaded with silky black and blue fruit, with flavors of dried blueberry and Chambord liqueur, plus notes of cinnamon and allspice.
