2010 French Red Wine
Nothing gets Fat Louis' wings flapping faster and feet stomping harder than fireworks, fine feathers and freedom. Always inspiring an unrivaled esprit de corps, a Fat Louis soirée doesn’t typically stop until the streets run red. With wine, of course!
Vive la Résistance and pass the Fat Louis. A cautionary word to the wise, however: Mixing this much free-flying pleasure can make for Messy Business.
Deep, jammy purple color. Juicy blackberry and ripe raspberry dance on a spicy foundation with nuances of mineral and leather. Well-balanced with discrete tannins and a delicious Mediterranean character.
