RED 3/31/12 2010 Rock Wall Wine Co. Montepulciano Contra Costa County (13.5% abv., $19.99, Du Vin Fine Wines): Bright, light ruby in the glass, with pleasant aromas of cherries and herbs. Good balance in the mouth between fruit, acid, and firm tannins. Finish shows hints of cocoa. Conclusion: Excellent value! A versatile wine that is fun to drink solo but will pair well with a wide range of foods. Has the acid to stand up to even spicy or smokey dishes.
