Santa Duc Heritage 2000

Domaine Santa Duc, Heritage 2000 ($20) -- Rhone, France by the winemaker Yves Gras (Earl Gras Edmond et Fils); a Robert Kacher Selection. Although it has a slightly hot nose due to the 14.5 % alcohol, this 100% Grenache is smooth and elegant in the mouth with a very nice finish. Has good structure and balance. Gras is a talented young winemaker known for his excellent Gigondas from old vine Grenache and Syrah. There is a rumor that this wine will be on sale very soon at a great price. It will fly off the shelf and is in limited supply.

[On sale for $16!]
