More about this wine from Rhone Valley, France
The Latour Family started making its mark on the French wine scene in 1872. Domaine de la Damase is a small plot with only 30 acres of organically farmed vines in the South of France. This special place wouldn't be known in the States if it wasn't for pro skater turned winemaker Kenny Likitprakong, who worked one harvest here while honing his wine making skillz.

This wine is an example of a classic Rhone Valley wine fermented in steel tanks and aged in old foudres - aka big a wooden tanks. On the nose you'll find bright red fruits with a hint of spice and earthiness that is balanced with tartness on the palate. Pair this french bad boy with meat. Whip up some Coq a Vin if you want to get fancy, but for now pair it up with this taco!
