Philippe Gimel-Saint Jean Du Barroux-L’Oligocene-Red Grenache-Syrah-Carignan-Cinsault-Cotes Du Ventoux-France-2004-$23.99-A distinct smell of brandy, kind of funky, amber in color.  I am not sure if something happened to the wine, I usually enjoy any Southern Rhone wine but that distinct brandy smell also was what the favor was, dark fruit, spice, kept trying to enjoy it but could not.             RP-90            CR-2.5             Good with another open bottle of wine to kill the taste.

Geo Wines-Chono-Reserva-Syrah-Equi Valley-Chile-2007-$9.99-A nose of spicy dark fruit, dark black in color.  A smooth easy going red, spice, blackberry, dark cherries and some minerals.  A good value, a mid week inexpensive drinking wine.             NR          CR-3.5-4           Good with steak, chicken and pasta.
