From France To California-From $49.99 To $23.99

Well, here's the comparison.
Here is the testable results of two Syrah wines, both are quite similar, but check-out the price!
In my last post I reviewed the Mas Du Soleilla Coteaux Du Languedoc La Clape Les Bartelles 2007 Syrah $49.99, 90 points.

Now let's get to the challenger:
Morgan Monterey 2008 Syrah, $19.99-$23.99, 90 points, has some familiar floral hints, but they are just that, hints.
This Syrah is a bit more subtle, yet the color is very close, the aroma leaves out the leather, but is rich in grape-cherry-pie, almost pungent though pleasant.
This Syrah is just as luscious, and maybe just a bit more delicious, yet not quite as complex and interesting.
The New Hampshire Wine-man scored this test a tie, scoring the Morgan Monterey 2008 Syrah 90 points, but at $19.99-$23.99 a clear winner and best buy.
