^I meant w/r/t the Mouton Cadet Réservés (and Warwick, and Liversan). Right now, I focus on anything but Spaniards. They've disappointed me so far.
de Gras (MontGras) Reserva, Cab Sauv/Syrah, '09 (Chile)
Quite nice. Big fruit.
And a glass of them:
Amaral (MontGras) Sauv Blanc '10 (Chile)
Again, big fruit. I'm quite sure I noticed passionfruit (it's not like pure passionfruit @kyle, but it's definitely there. quite happy I was able to grasp a note, even though it's not even listed in the "official" tasting notes)

Domaine La Bastide, Syrah, '09. Not really convinced. It's not bad, but it's lacking complexitiy, imo. Aftertaste isn't very exciting, too. Overall it's ok for the price. How did you like it, pB? BTW, I paid 6.5$.
I'll taste it again tomorrow and decide whether I get more.Edited by b1os - 4/29/12 at 4:35pm
