Chateau Maris La Touge 2007 Syrah,$11.51-$29.99, average price on the internet is approximately $15.00, 89 points, manifesting a very good wine at a very good price. As a red-table wine, this one excels.
Chateau Maris La Touge 2007 Syrah has a magenta color, a Mediterranean aroma of black olive, espresso, earthy-plum and grape, all of which are carried throughout the palate on a creamy medium-plus body with grainy tannin and mouth-watering acidity (This is a very dry wine). The 15% alcohol is well balanced and the finish is fair on warm spice. This wine is both a stand-alone good and a food friendly Syrah. At $11.51, I'm glad I picked-up more than one last summer.
