Grown up blend from Sicily
Last night we were at City Cellars for a Duck Tour and tasting, which was a blast. Riding the Duck is a great way to tour the city and get a waters eye view. Anyway, as I usually do, I was checking out the new wines and found a neat new blend from Sicily. The wine is from Lagaria and is a 2006 blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Nero D'Avola. Brian said it was full bodied big wine. We opened it tonight and after some air this wine becomes a well balanced full bodied rich wine. At $12 this is a great buy. It would easily hold up to a big steak or ribs, but is elegant enough to be enjoyed on its own. Try this one, its an inexpensive treat!
