Collines all Rhônes

Ogier 1998 Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodanniennes Syrah “La Rosine” (Rhône) – I’d call this ready, and in a showy, very approachable state of said readiness. “Sweet” fruit turned into that marvelous mix of animal, vegetable, and mineral that characterizes older syrah, with some pepper and earth complexity and a very pleasant, medium-length finish. Intro to Aged Rhône 101, lesson one. (8/09)

    After reading that I'm feeling a bit guilty about killing a bottle of the '07 Ogier Rosine a few days back. Delicious wine though.

    Oh, it wasn't a deliberate stay of execution…it and its brethren were "found bottles." I really need to do a cellar cull.
