Robert Mondavi 2007 Private Selection Syrah (California)
I love coming down to the United States, if for nothing else to buy and try some of those wines you just never see in my part of the Great White North thanks to those tyrants at the LCBO. This Syrah is definitely one of those wines, and the best part is that it was on sale for only $8.49 at our local Meijer’s (grocery store); heck all Mondavi Private Selection wines were on for that price - even with the exchange rate being what it is that’s still a great deal. The nose was all raspberries and white pepper; the palate was big and juicy with red and black berry flavours and that white pepper from the noses continues on in the mouth. Yummy.
