Navarro Correas Syrah 2005
This Argentinian lacks any very distinctive fruit accents but to make up for that displays a nice, deep oaky flavor. Some would call it over oaked, but I must say I found it pleasing. Not only does it last a good long time on the tongue, but it seems to grow on you after the first glass. Very good as a subtle accompaniment to red meats, and the price, at $9.99, for once does not strike me as outlandish.
