…truffle mashed potatoes below. The Panoplie is built on a base of our most powerful Mourvedre lots, whose combination of mid-palate richness, chewy tannins, loamy earth notes and silky-smooth texture matched the dish sip for taste, and whose higher tones of rose petals and raspberry fruit lingered perhaps because they were not directly mirrored in the dish. All in all a fitting, and completely satisfying, way to end a wonderful night.

As always, we are thankful to and impressed by our chefs …

…13.5% alc. A blend of 56% carignane grapes, 28% mourvedre, 9% grenache, 6% syrah, 1% zinfandel. Dark ruby color, tinge of magenta; robust and rustic, heaping helpings of ripe blackberries, blueberries and plums with notes of pomegranate and mulberry and hints of lavender and pomander; graphite-brushed tannins make it moderately dense, while pert acidity keeps it lively. Cries out of cheeseburger sliders and barbecue ribs. Very Good+. About $ 18.

…superlative wines in Alicante and Navarra, demonstrating an understanding of Monastrell and Garnacha to match his mastery of Tempranilo. The reason? Attention to detail through the entire process, reflected here by organic viticulture and a maturation regime which affords the Artazuri a generous 6 months in barrel.

The ensuing complexity is a delight to behold. The natural exuberance of the Garnacha grape is not lost, merely enhanced by a complexity which combines notes of spice, …

Central Coast. 13% alc. Grenache 55%, mourvèdre 23.5% roussanne 10%, cinsault 7% carignane 2.5%, grenache blanc 2%. Very pale pink color; beguiling aromas and flavors of strawberries, raspberries and red currants with a faint flush of blood orange and violets; a transparent filigree of limestone lends a crisp yet talc-like aura to the structure while tense acidity keeps it lively and appealing. Beautifully made. Excellent. About $ 18.

Cigare, a rosé of 62% grenache, 17% mourvèdre, 9% roussanne, 6% grenache blanc, 6% Cinsault from the Central Coast of California. Fresh fruit, nice acid and realistic alcohol level ( 12.5%) made for a thirst quenching and slurpable match with the spicy dish. The bottle (which sells for under $ 20) disappeared as quickly as the eggplant.

I also envisioned a nice Etna Rosso (or Rosato). I've been thinking a lot about Salvo Foti and his I Vigneri wines, …

…% alcohol by volume, is a blend of 67% Syrah and 33% Mourvedre, and retails for under $ 10 a bottle.

1.) The first word that comes to mind when I see and taste this wine is "pretty."

2.) You really can't beat the sub-$10 price tag for this wine. Stock up for all the dog days of summer that are most definitely ahead.

3.) We had this with rainbow trout on the grill for dinner. I tend to baste my trout in a lemon/mayo/salt/pepper/etc. blend and the acid in the Jean-Luc
