2001 Cave de Tain, Hermitage ($65/33) -- Half-off at Pho Paris on Monday Night. Big aromas, balanced fruit, long finish, best with food, but very enjoyable with appetizers and Tina the bartender.

If this were an American wine the producers name would be in bold and the region would be in sub-titles, but this is French so the region is foremost.

PS: JK Carriere is coming to town in May for a Pinot dinner. If you had to pick one wine dinner to go to this year, this is the one. Oregon is THE Pinot region, and Jim Prosser is considered one of the best and is a friend of Jeff's (FOJ). Call Jeff at 513-871-1234 to make a reservation. Seating is limited to 35 (well, 34 now!).

Bon appetite!
