Wine & Food Pairing

Parallèle 45 is a fairly dry wine with a medium body and rounded tannins. The Grenache grapes provides fruit flavors up front while the Syrah creates a peppery edge to finish. The dry fruitiness makes it seem almost tart in comparison to other dry red wines, but it may be too dry for some people's tastes.

Paul Jaboulet Aine Parallèle 45 Tasting Notes & Review

Color & Clarity
Parallèle 45 is an amazingly dark purple-red wine that extends from the edges down into the center. It's also very brilliant, with bright stars shining deep in the wine glass.

Nose
Parallèle 45 is a red wine with a clean, pleasant bouquet. There are positive fruity aromas accompanied by slightly spicy edges.

Palate
Parallèle 45 is a fairly dry wine with a medium body and rounded tannins. The Grenache grapes provides fruit flavors up front while the Syrah creates a peppery edge to finish. The dry fruitiness makes it seem almost tart in comparison to other dry red wines, but it may be too dry for some people's tastes.

Food Pairing
Parallèle 45 mixes nicely with sharp cheddar cheese — the cheddar mitigates the pepper of the Syrah, giving the wine a more buttery taste. The pepper of the Syrah is reinforces spicy food, like pepperoni. Parallèle 45 will work well with most types of beef and tomato sauces.

Recipes
Parallèle 45 isn't just good with tomato sauce, but it's also cooks well in tomato sauce. If you have leftover wine, consider pouring some in homemade tomato sauce to use with pasta.

The Rhône vineyards where the grapes for Parallèle 45 are grown are located near the 45th latitude in France, thus the name. Paul Jaboulet Aîné produces Parallèle 45 as a rose by removing the juice before it spends very long with the skins then ages it for a short period of time.
