2011 Gerard Bertrand Minervois Syrah / Carignan, $16

A good wine but somewhat timid.  Decently balanced but lacks complexity and memorability.  

Paired well with merguez sausage from the farmers market and freekah salad.

Gerard Bertrand wines had a good year with 18 wines in the 2011 vintage between 86 and 92 from wine spectator.  This was good but I will probably not try another.

Sipping: 2-/6 (good)

Paired: 2-/6 (good)
