My favorite value Syrah.
Domaine du Colombier, Crozes-Hermitage, Cuvee Gaby, 2005 is a terrific wine that peter and I have been drinking a lot of. It's $24.99 at the Wine House. They make a less fancy version (not called Cuvee Gaby) for $19.99 that's equally as good.
It's 100% Syrah from the Northern Rhone Valley in France. It has everything you want in Syrah, meat, smoke, game, dark plummy fruit and firm acidity. Delicious and brooding. Run to get this now, because I know Jim gets it in limited quantities!
