Wine Of The Week (7)

I have found the perfect wine for Thanksgiving!  Okay, David, our sommelier, has found the perfect wine- semantics!  The wine is the 2007 Copain “Tous Ensemble” Mendocino County, Syrah and if your too lazy to look up “tous ensemble” allow me to translate:  it means “together.”  How perfect is that for Thanksgiving?!

Now I know what you are wondering, ‘other than the endearing name, what does this wine have going for it?!’  Well according to David, the Tous Ensemble is “not the big fat super jammy, no acid Syrah that you tend to see nowadays.  It’s the leaner hotter younger sister Syrah.  And she is spicy.  Which is why I like it.  I like wines with a little spice.  I like girls with a little spice.  Actually it would be a hot Latin woman.” Okay David— I just hope you spend more than $17 on the girls you date!
