Jean-Luc Colombo Les Fées Brunes Crozes Hermitage 2009 Syrah, $16,99-$19.99, flawed, poured core black grading maroon with a thin clear wine ring.
A persistent musty smell wasn't propitious.
Near full-bodied, fair acidity, resolved tannin, and flavors of mulberry and leather with a slightly sour pomegranate indicated that this bottle was flawed. The texture was smooth, and the wine was drinkable, but not particularly pleasant.
Finished as it began, bland, and even the 13% alcohol couldn't quicken this one.
