Ste. Chapelle Soft Red 2010
Even though we had a late spring, 2009 still provided a long ripening season, allowing the grapes to reach their peak ripeness. The premium red grapes we use for Soft Red were fermented on their skins to extract color and flavor before fermentation to achieve a lower alcohol level with balanced residual sweetness.
This wine outsells all other wines COMBINED produced in Idaho! Wildly popular!
Way too sweet. This might be a great base for a wine cooler, or a sangria, but I certainly wouldn't serve it with pasta or my favorite picnic fare (as suggested on the label).
Food Pairings for Ste. Chapelle Soft Red
The 2009 Soft Red shows notes of licorice, strawberry and plum. Although made up of mostly Bordeaux varieties it is hardly a traditional claret blend. It is finished sweet, but with enough acid to keep it in balance.
