Other text
Charles Helfenbein is a Rhone Valley native, and has been making wine since 2007. He started the domaine from scratch with rented vines. Since then, he's purchased 150 acres, mostly in areas zoned for Cotes du Rhone. Eric Asimov recently lauded Helfenbein’s Brezeme Cotes du Rhone in his “20 Spring Wines Under $20”. I have tried all of Helfenbein's wines, and I found the La Syrah to be both a great value and fit for the store.

Food pairing
I recently served the Helfenbein La Syrah alongside a slow braised dish of Lamb Osso Buco. I seasoned the lamb with dried herbs and used red wine as the braising liquid, cooking the meat in a slow cooker for four hours on low setting. Syrah is a very traditional accompaniment to lamb, and Helfenbein La Syrah is an excellent pairing. The flavors are big enough to stand up to the intense flavors of the dish, and also have enough acidity to cut through the unctuous texture that comes from braising meat on the bone.
