$17 at Total. This is syrah from a large Northern Rhone coop.

From their site:
"On sale currently. Deep garnet-red colour with purple tints. The nose is rich and powerful, developing fresh blackcurrant, red berries with a hint of spice and a touch of vanilla. Fresh and ripe on the palate, with firm tannic structure. Full bodied wine with good length. This wine is a fine blend of strength and elegance."

It is a very good wine, but I did not find it full-bodied, more medium. Blackcurrant, wood and also a slight medicinal nose. Definitely fresh on the palate and easy to drink, I find it leaning more to elegance than to strength. Very nice though, and I think a wine that would go well with salmon.
