The 2009 Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone is a fresh, berry fruit driven red with loads of soft, pure plum and blackberry flavors mingling with black pepper spice. - Winery
Jaboulet Côtes du Rhône Parallele 45 is a blend of Grenache and Syrah from vines averaging 25 years old. Sourced from vineyards throughout the Rhone valley that combine to produce a pure, clean expression of this region.
The grapes arrive at the winery and are sorted and vinified in stainless steel tank for 3 to 4 weeks to extract flavor, followed by 3-6 months in tank prior to bottling. The goal is to retain freshness and balance while producing a robust and food friendly wine.
Blend: Grenache: 60%, Syrah: 40%
