Train Them Young

Train Them Young

Talia holding a bottle of Walden Cote du Roussillon. Named after the philosopher and poet, Henry David Thoreau and the natural simplicity of life he wrote about in Walden. Very inexpensive, this is the love child of the infamous Clos de Fees and several local family owned grape grower. Clos de Fees is the vineyard where the fairies would have lived, if in fact they existedIt is a blend of equal parts Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, with a touch of Mourvèdre. All from old vines, Rousillon has older vines than anywhere else in France.  It has very rich fruit flavors with an old world elegance. Flavors of black cherry, chocolate, fresh herbs, and plum with a light anise flavor in the finish.This wine is such an incredible value, it might be a difficult find, but it’s out there. Go and get it.
