Jade Mountain La Provençale – The Wine Virgin

The Jade Mountain was paired with our entrée, which was pumpkin cream sauce over fresh pasta. The pasta was not sweet which was my first thought and neither was this blend. The La Provençale is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Carignane, and Mourvedre. Of those varietals I’ve honestly only heard of Syrah, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying this wine. The Jade Mountain was a dark smoky wine with a deep fruit flavor. It was a bit heavier than the other wines that we tasted this evening. It had a nice acidity with a hint of cocoa. The smoky flavor went great with the pumpkin pasta and was a very nice wine that was easy to enjoy.
