This is a good buy at $10, but for a bit more fun try the partner Cusumano 2008 Nero d’Avola shelved side by side....

A well balanced syrah with correct varietal character but fairly lean and slender on palate and nose. Black berry...

Discovered that throughout all of the Windsor, Ontario LCBO's that only 6 bottles of this wine were in the inventory so I thought I would give it a try.

Typical dark red syrah colour. Nose has cherry, tobacco, and green pepper.

The taste on the attack was a bit bitter. That along with the hot finish over powered much of the taste. Some tannins on the finish as well.
