I love close out bins where wines are marked down because they either didn't sell or a new vintage is about to hit the market. For $5.99 I picked up this bottle of 2008 Reserve de la Saurine, a blend of 60% grenache and 40 % carignan from the south of France. The wine was marked down from $15.99.
Bright raspberry fruit from the grenache, tart and happy. A darker, rustic side from the carignan with earthy flavors and a bit of green veggies. Good acid, little or no wood, mice long finish and a decent wine at its current price. It wouldn't have been a good buy at its original price. Great with a hamburger.
A bottle of it's white counterpart was consumed last summer and discussed here. It too was marked down to $5.99.
