Day 187-Oak Grove Petite Syrah 2007 Reserve at Vintages in Arlington Heights for under $15.00
Another wine reccomended by Robert that was very good. I paired this with pizza and italian sausage for dinner. The wine is packed with fruit flavors and very little tannin on the aftertaste. I did not taste the pepper that the label states comes through, but I do taste the blackberry and cherry. If you like a fruit forward red wine, this is a good wine for you. My favorite grape is the Petite Syrah, however I prefer it made new world style fruit forward, mellow tannins, and able to accompany any meal. I think this wine would make a great addition to a Thanksgiving dinner and does not break the bank.
