Kermit Lynch, Domaine Durban, Vin de Pays de Vaucluse Rouge, France 2018
Treat this smooth, juicy red as you would a Côtes du Rhône. After all, the grapes — mostly Grenache and Syrah — come from the heart of the southern Rhône. The soft, juicy fruit and bright acidity lead to a long, dry finish with very supple tannin. At this price, it is quite likely that this wine will become your go-to red for barbecues and leisurely summer evenings with friends.
