It's been a while since I last mentioned any wine. The 2007 Sainte-Croix, Syrah-Merlot, Vin De Pays D'Oc La Bergerie, Languedoc-Roussillon, is rather good. It's got a strong berry taste, and it's a rich dark purple in hue - not red. I picked it up at Trader Joe's at Arrowhead for $7, and it was tasty. A little acidic, but not overpoweringly so.
If you don't like strong Syrahs, you probably won't like this. I did. Dr Desert Flower had a taste of it (over the 3 days the bottle was open that it took to consume, a glass at a time, in our kitchen) and she liked it as well.
Other reviews that a Google search shows thought it was fairly good (here) or really good (here and here).
