Sparky, I like the idea of Rhone blends; maybe we can narrow it a little further? I know we a general blends theme a couple years ago.
I'm game for (most!) of whatever you all would like to do for activities, etc.
Pick a flavor and bring on the alcohol-infused whipped cream! It keeps for a long time. No refrigeration is required.
Well, Northern Rhone red wines are mostly Syrah based, so maybe Southern Rhone wines?
Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Southern Rhone) can contain up to 13 varieties of wine grapes (eight red and five white)
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault blends for reds.
Ugni Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Picpoul, Clairette, and Viognier for white blends.
Other varietals allowed in Southern Rhone wines include: Brun Argenté (locally called Camarèse or Vaccarèse), Calitor, Carignan Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Clairette Rose, Counoise, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Grenache Noir, Marselan, Muscardin, Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, Muscat Rouge à Petits Grains, Picardan, Piquepoul Blanc, Piquepoul Gris, Piquepoul Noir, Terret Noir
So any blends including those as the main ones? So some of the Rhone Ranger wines should work.
