A delight--nose is almost new world-like in rich intensity, but the pepper, bramble, and bits of stinky earth start to come through revealing its glorious Rhone-ness. Grippy and smooth, impressive.

More bacon in this than on our local grocery cooler. A little more caramel on the back that I could do without, but the wine is simply great for $19.99 at #costco This is undeniably Syrah, and that is as evident as it should be. I'll buy more.

Nicely made. This is made at the Graillot winery through the cooperation of Jaboulet and the Perrin family. The Vin de France Syrah is über complex for the value.

Red fruit, slightly green and floral with some caramel on nose at first. Nice iron, meaty and stemmy notes as it opens. Getting better by the second.

?? at the blind tasting I guessed "carmenere" then evolving in the glass it shows some overipeness of an Amarone.. something is wrong in me.. or in the wine!!
