Muscular yet Refined- Domaine Degher 2007 Red Zone

I had a chance to travel to Paso Robles about a month ago and was impressed with some of the wine that is coming out of the area.  Still on a Paso high, I was pretty excited when Domaine Degher, a Paso Robles winery, contacted me a couple of weeks ago and offered to send a few bottles my way.  The vineyards are organically farmed and the winemaker, Denis Degher, channels his passion for music into a beautiful symphony of wines.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

Red Zone has a rich nose of blackberries, black cherries, and oak.  The musty aromas make me want to sip my glass in a dimly lit study reading an old book.  The wine is robust and full of flavor.  Oak and dark fruit a surrounded by nuances of vanilla.  Muscular yet refined…a sophisticated blend worth uncorking!

My Wine Rating- B+

Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair Red Zone with steaks, veal chops, or roasted duck.
