Chateau de la Negly, La Falaise, Coteaux de Languedoc, 2006.
When Peter and I drank this wine he said, "This is the sort of wine that scares you as a syrah producer, because its so good, and the price is unbelieveable"
And indeed he is correct. It has smoky, meaty, gamey notes, but great black fruit concentration and moderate, very balanced tannins. It is simply the best Syrah I have had this year. And it would be perfect for my friends Rebecca who Peter, who love different styles of wine. It has old world qualities for Rebecca and new world qualities for Peter. It's the perfect wine at the perfect price.
It's on sale now for $19.99 at K&L in Hollywood.
