Red Wine /// Syrah & Grenache // Nimes / France
Well well well. Nimes has been on a no-fly list for a while (with other shit that will no longer) but when you taste a wine like this you wonder why. Sure, its an old fashioned beast with plenty of ripe and jammy fruit, but the stony terroir gives it an edge of minerality and there is a nice streak of acidity that was lacking in more or less all of the wine made here in the last 20 years.
Mike Chapout knows what he is at. This is super uncool and conventional. Super fun to drink. Super value. STSWine
