2005 Jaboulet Crozes Hermitage, Les Jalets

From: Rhone Valley, France

Price: $27

Serve with: Venison, roast turkey

Hermitage produces one of the world's greatest red wines from the syrah grape - with prices that reflect its majesty. This Crozes Hermitage from just outside the boundaries of the hallowed ground is a more-than-respectable "poor man's Hermitage." It offers pure, penetrating syrah fruit, with hints of black raspberry, cherry and earth. This intense, elegant wine is worthy of a special occasion.
