Pontificis Red (Northern CA Only)
November 27, 2012 - Fearlessly Archived - Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
The meal isn't quite ready… still. An interesting, smooth-drinking bottle is just the thing to placate palates and provoke conversation – a "bridge builder," if you will. This cheeky nod to Châteauneuf-du-Pape is perfect. Made from the signature Côtes du Rhône GSM blend – Grenache, Syrah & Mourvèdre – Pontificis boasts intense aromas of black fruits with spicy nuances and floral hints. With satiny tannins, it’s rich and full-flavored without being dogmatic (too early for that). It’s good. It could even carry you right through the turkey, should you wish, and you may very well at our price of $5.99* for a 750 ml bottle.
*Pontificis Red is currently only available in our Northern California Trader Joe's stores where wine is sold. Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff. (If we could, we would.)
