LoHud Wine of the Week
Chateauneuf du Pape Clos St. Jean 2008: Sweet and inviting nose with black cherry kirsch, cranberries, black olive. Fleshy and full-bodied on the palate with excellent clarity and spice. Region: Rhone Valley, France. Price: $44.99. Goes with: Roasted Duck, pork tenderloin. Why we chose it: A heady and hedonistic “special occasion” red that can be enjoyed both now and later. Take it to a dinner party and watch it disappear!
