I suppose we’re going to have to bring out heavier ammunition when the Detroit Red Wings start the playoffs tomorrow night against the Phoenix Coyotes, but this little beauty provided some excellent red Rhône mojo for Detroit’s strong regular season finish, especially the big 3-2 overtime win against the Chicago Blackhawks in the Sunday afternoon finale.

2007 Domaine Galevan Côtes du Rhône “Paroles de Femme,” 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault, 10% Carignan, 14.5% alc., $15.00 Can.: Clean dark color; spicy, peppery, smoky plum, berry and cherry flavors and aromas, more red than black, all anchored with some earth and mineral. Full bodied without any heaviness, ripe, but not excessively so, well-structured for several years in the cellar, but quite approachable with some time in a decanter and sporting nice length on the finish. Alan Kerr told me that this was a nice wine when we were checking out the selection in a St. Catherines, Ontario LCBO outlet a few weekends ago, and he was spot on, as it offers killer QPR. Now, to see if I can find some in my own neighborhood… Find this wine
