Le Faux Frog Apropos 2003 SyrahPosted in : Red Wine, Shiraz / Syrah, Wine on by : The Gourmez
Le Faux Frog
Other stuff on the label: Appropos 2003 Syrah
Color: Deep purple, with a thin opaque layer at the top.
Smell: At most, a bit of warmth is smelled. Nothing else.
First Sip: Very smooth going down and a bit bitter. Woody.
Gulp: A longer swirl round the palate reveals pepper, wood, and a lightly smoky ambience. The acidity almost makes me twinge but the peppery finish is good. Otherwise, it’s a fairly bland Syrah but smooth is better than strongly undrinkable.
