The gorgeous, ripe fruit, earthy notes and perfectly balancing acidity of this Paul Jabulet Aine Les Grands Terasses Cornas is perfect for your favorite meaty fall and winter fare. Try it with a Moroccan lamb barbecue; the cumin, cinnamon, ginger and cilantro in the recipe will pair seamlessly with the beautiful fruit and earthiness of this luscious Rhone red. So will a classic French cassoulet made with pork belly, smoked duck and goose. A favorite comfort option is oxtail stew. How will you ever decide?
Wine Spectator: "Fresh and very lively in feel, with nicely embedded acidity driving the delicious plum, cassis and blackberry fruit flavors along. Lots of bright bay leaf, savory and iron notes stream through the finish. Shows solid cut and drive. Best from 2019 through 2030. 400 cases made, 100 cases imported." Oct 2018
Winery: "Simple color, the nose is concentrated powerful and rich. There are notes of black fruits and spices. On the palate, this powerful wine with a beautiful tannin structure shows aromas of garrigue and red fruits with licorice, lingering and dense finish.
Pairs well with jugged hare with fresh pasta and veal kidneys with marrow."
