Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

2001 Chateau St. Sauveur - Cotes du Ventoux

In contrast to the 2003 Walter Dacon Syrah Belle, which by the way had a beautiful complex nose, this wine is more subdued with good balance, fruit, and medium body. A delicious wine that was a total contrast in style with the Walter Dacon, old world vs. new again. Of course the comparison isn't completely fair since this wine is older and probably has considerably less Syrah in it. The wine is available in the Seattle Market. Price unknown.
