Off Topic: Dom. de Sainte Marthe Cassan Pays d’Hérault Syrah – $
Pays d’Hérault is the IGP title for wines made in the Hérault department of Languedoc-Roussillon on the southern coast of France.
Dark magenta. Soft red fruits, Rhone-like nose. Spice, vanilla and nail polish.
Lovely, soft and fruity in the mouth. I paid a really low price for this. It tasted quite full (for a syrah) to begin with, then tended to fade as the glass sat there. Fruit heft was lost, and a metallic character became more apparent.
Still, not too bad. I just drank it fast and enjoyed!
