Mas des Bressades Cabernet-Syrah Blend Vin de Pays du Gard Cabernet/Syrah 2010

Member Review by DavidShaw:

The 2006 has pronounced cedar comparable to many upscale cabs but then the 30% Syrah kicks in with a delightful chewy tobacco mouth feel. All in all better than I expected for the money (I paid $17). It was delightful with a rustic salad of field greens and roast chicken. This easy drinking Rhone Valley wine could stand by itself or with a variety of meals. I'm thinking about apricot glazed baby back pork ribs right now. This would be a great wine for guests that you are trying to ween off the sweet red jug wines they usually drink but not quite ready for a serious Cabernet. I'm tempted to rate it a five to counter the undeserved Two Bottle rating but in fairness will give it a well deserved Three Bottle rating.
