So, to toast her memory we suggest a glass of kosher Bordeaux produced by another branch of the family; Barons Edmond and Benjamin de Rothschild Haut Medoc 2011 ($ 30), a full-bodied blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with deep dark cherry and floral aromas that expand nicely in the glass into cassis, dark plum, red cherry and strawberry flavors accented by spice, oak and tobacco notes.

A decent spread of beers came in my sample box – a Mica Oro from Spain was light and refreshing and I rather liked the Karel from Kaapse Brouwers in the Netherlands too with its deep amber colour and big frothy head. Heavier in style and fuller in alcohol…

I mentioned it to my wife who, while gracing me with a withering stare, asked the driver to get off the highway at the next exit to take us back to the house.

It is made as an antidote to the line of Northern Rhone reds that are made in an international style and so have lost sight of the unique content of the region.
