If you think many reds are too heavy for summer, this is a good option. Great with grilled salmon and tangy salads.
Lots of smooth crushed raspberry, soft inviting texture. High alcohol but no heat at all. Too easy to drink and very food friendly. Dangerously gulpable. Pairings range from grilled meat, to red sauces, to duck with red curry to salmon and tuna sashimi. Very versatile, great value

Starts off firm, with red fruit flavors and a tang of acidity competing with spicy oak. Lingers seductively on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2010.

The Côtes-du-Rhône-like 1999 Old Vines Grenache/Shiraz possesses an elegant, medium-weight style with notes of cherries and ripe peaches. It is soft, round, and ideal for drinking over the next 2-3 years.
Medium red. Expressive red berry and cola aromas are brightened by floral and mineral qualities. The creamy raspberry and blackberry flavors boast a velvety texture and are gently framed by fine-grained tannins. Exotic baking spices build on the persistent, juicy finish. Pretty seductive stuff mdash; especially at this price.
On the tart side, with a crisp edge to the blackberry and roasted red pepper flavors. Drink now through 2011.
The 2004 Grenache ndash; Shiraz was aged entirely in used oak. The aromatics are muted but with coaxing earthy kirsch and blue fruit scents emerge. More expressive on the palate, the wine is velvety-textured, seamless, and easy-going. Made in a forward style, it is a wine to drink over the next 3ndash;4 years. It offers good value.
This Grenache and Shiraz red blend is packed with juicy spiceness. Fresh and lively it's great as a summer red.
