Wino Wednesday: Minervois Syrah 2008
Today's wine comes from France!
"Onctuous, sensual, intense berry fruit flavors dominated by the rich and peppery Syrah, this wine is exceptionally soft with silky fruitiness coming from the Grenache."
Agreed! Unassuming, this wine is subtle and delicious. Not particularly tenacious in the tannin department, H&B's syrah tickles the tongue and leaves a hint of pepper in the aftertaste. I'm definitely pleased with this purchase. This wine would be great with dinner, especially a meaty meal.
