how about some syrah from the Rhone?
A complete coincidence... just popped open a bottle of Graillot Crozes 07 that was marred by volatile acidity.
Must agree with them. Haven't come across many 08 Rhônes in general that have impressed. The Domaine des Lises 07 is a pretty fantastic value.
haven't had any 08's yet. There are so many outstanding 07s around, I was thinking of taking a pass on 08.
