Andrew Murray Syrah

Like it or not, there are certain things in life that are dependable. Alcatraz is a secure prison, the bank will have my money when I ask them for it, politics gets some people emotional, Mc Donald's drive thru will stop all breakfast orders at 10:29 AM, and Andrew Murray will always deliver a quality wine that taste like I paid a lot more. 

Not all of these aspects are great, however they are dependable. Andrew Murray continues like clock work to keep the train going of high quality and amazing values. 

I must admit, I hit Costco a couple of times for the 2011 and for under $20, how could you not? This 2012 is keeping the train going with a big nose of blackberry jam and cedar. Deep inky purple, and a rich wine that I paired with the baseball playoffs, a bacon burger with grilled onions and big slab of sharp chedder cheese. Syrah is my favorite burger pairing, and this wine for $16 at AMV Wines makes me want to sing "Take me out to the ball game!" Or Super-Bowl! (Written during October play-offs and somehow got missed)
