Overall Rating:  ☆☆
Pairing:   Being a “Villages”, this is a mid-quality wine from the Beaujolais region, but it was a solid pairing for some lamb and chicken kebabs over rice and  a good bargain.  The tart cherry and dust flavors worked with the grilled meats, and the  yogurt sauce was there to cut some of the dryness and tannin.
