  • Definitive Rhone (Fabi and Rosi European Kitchen Austin, Texas): Where do we start" How about "does not go with bread!"? What seemed a fair comparison, a 19 year old California mourvedre with several like-aged bandols, was hardly that. This wine was anything but......bandol-like. Some comments: fun wine, port, bizarre, strange, raisin, roasted fruit, chocolate cake batter, fig cake with powdered sugar, late harvest, and so forth. Some found this over-bearing, or over-ripening, others enjoyed the exotic nose, its cherry and chocolate port character; a taster detected overtones of floral viognier. Ruby purple in color, a surprisingly light nose, there was a spicy plum mid-palate, and then the prunes and raisins kicked in. Does not go with bread. But tasted like chocolate-covered cherries with the pate, and pecans and dried cherries with the wild boar sausage.
