Beautiful floral notes with dried red rose petals, violet and herb de Provence. Dried red cherry, ripe raspberry and black cherry, dried herbs with touch of black pepper note, med body, med plus tannin with med to med plus acidity. A lovely wine for its price.

Not overly complex, but a perfect blind. Peppery, black olives, and gamey.

Sweet red fruits and berries, almost candy like, mixed with a hint of stinky component. Quote pleasant actually. Smooth tannin but not very complex. Solid @$19.99.

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.
