Gerard Bertrand Minervois Syrah-Carignan 2008 Wine Review (NW)
Notes of wild dark berries and roasted coffee on the nose
Full bodied and dense on the palate
Somewhat rustic finish of dark berries, bramble, and herbs
A simple summary of this wine is captured in three words: good, rich, and rustic. It screams Southern France and shows the density and rich fruit flavor that goes along with wines from this region. Pour along with a good stew, and you'll be finishing this bottle quickly. The retail price is $16, which is a rather good value. Raise a glass!
