Domaine la Soumade RasteauDomaine la Soumade Rasteau 2011: Drop-dead delicious with black fruit and spicy notes and silky smooth tannins. Region: Rasteau, Rhone Valley, France. Price: $30. Goes with: Coq au vin. Why I chose it: Rasteau, in the Southern Rhone valley, is a relatively unknown appellation, and it really should get more recognition.

Recommended by: Vine & Co. in Bedford Hills. This is Bottle No. 5 of our 12th Mixed Case series.

For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Jen Lucia of Vine & Co. in Bedford Hills.
