Very solid classic example of Napa Rhone Syrah. Black fruit, smoke, pepper, bacon it may not be too shelf but it's very serviceable.

2010 Guigal Crozes-Hermitage is paradise in a bottle. Pepper, plums, dirt with medium tannin and acid. $25 of goodness. Not too complex but excellent nonetheless.

I expected a lot more from this one... albeit I'm consuming it in bed at a bed & breakfast in northern Quebec, at 8:30 pm and trying not to fall asleep after a long day of skiing. Just a bit too light, too tart, too acidic.

Showing lovely bacon, lavender and hard pan earth with blackberry and plum lingering in the background. A modest bottle but showing grace in its age.

Smoky bacon fat. Very silky, esp for the pricepoint. One of my faves for under $30 retail.
