Wine Tasting Note: Gallo Red Bicyclette Syrah, 2003, Vin de Pays D'Oc, France.
From Threshers £7.99.
This wine, now available in the UK, is Gallo's plan to dominate the market for French wines in the USA. Gallo hopes to make the brand the largest-selling French wine import by 2006. Over there it retails for $10 here a snidge under eight quid. Is it worth it? The Syrah is a peppery little thing, nice and fruity up-front then a layer of dusty tannins leads into a austere liquorice and herb spiced finish. Dark purple in colour with a nice aroma of cherry and blackberry. Nice but a touch expensive.
Scribbling's Rating - 88/100

I agree with you that it's too pricey, especially when you can get an equivalent Shiraz at Tesco for 5.
