Anyone who knows me knows that I am in love with Rhone wines so I am always excited to try a new bottle. Château La Nerth 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a Rhone blend from a winery that got its start in the 12th century. My husband and I decided to uncork it over the weekend and we were pretty impressed with this beautiful, Rhone red!
