La Belle Terrasse Syrah 2004, French Vin Pays

Full bodied moderately complex but a little rough around the edges, deep red table wine from Luengdoc region. Pronounced berry flavors with overtones of cherry and red currants, slightly medicinal and just slightly tannic. A tantalizing mix of flavors and textures that might strike your fancy but admittedly not for everyone (indeed, why not be picky when shelling out 99 cents of your own hard earned casho per bottle?).

For those who find favor, suggest pairings with roast leg of lamb, oven roasted potatoes, charbroiled sirloin steak, roast prime rib of beef, Hungarian goulash, peppered tri-tip, grilled asparagus and peppers, brushetta, pasta puttanesca and aged French blue cheeses. A votre sante!
